There is Free Parking at Arlebury Park, Railway Station and Perins School, all a short walk to the Event Centre. If you are lucky you will find street parking very close by.

Map/Areas
1:5,000 waterproof paper map, 5m contours: course 1 is on an oversize A3 (354mm x 420mm), courses 2 to 5 on A3 and course 6 & 7 on A4. . Map created in 2020, first time use for an Urban event. Area comprises the town centre, housing estates and parkland.

Climb in the area is minimal so is not shown on control descriptions.

Courses
Due to road crossings on all other courses, those under 16 on the day of competition must run one of the junior classes unless shadowed by an adult. Beginners are very welcome.

Start/Finish
Punching start 280m west of the event centre on the same road, just turn up for your allocated slot time, collect eTag and go! Those parking at Arlebury Park will pass the start on the way to the event centre.

Touch free EMIT will be used on all courses.

The finish for the junior courses will be near the start. All other courses will finish by the event centre.

Registration
10:15 to 12:00 at the event centre. Pick up your eTag from a BADO helper on arrival.

Starts
To accomodate Juniors running some of the Urban area we are starting them before the Seniors. We do not have enough helpers to marshall the Juniors at the same time as the Seniors.

Junior Starts from 10:30 to 10:50 (Courses 6 & 7)
Senior Starts from 11:00 to 12:30 (Courses 1 to 5)

Courses close
Promptly at 14:00 please. You must report to download before you leave the event.

Facilities
There are Toilets in the event centre and on the way from the Railway Station car park. There are, also, toilets in the Arlebury Parking building.

Limited First Aid only, nearest A&E is in Winchester.

There are plenty of options for refreshments near to the event centre.

Conduct
Please make yourself aware of and abide by the British Orienteering Participant Code of Conduct.

Safety
All competitors take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety.

The town centre is always busy so please be courteous to members of the public using the area.

The road between the event centre and the start is the busiest, we advise using the light controlled pedestrian crossing.

Please be careful near to the river, though not deep the water is quite fast flowing.

The junior courses will pass through the busy town at the start of their courses and will be run by the river. If any parents are concerned about this then please shadow your child.

Dogs
Dogs are welcome out on the courses, but only on leads please.

Fences and OOB
Double tagged fences must not be crossed. Do not cross any thing marked with a thick black line or with impassable vegetation. All OOB areas must be avoided and respected.

Risk
Orienteering is an adventure sport; you are responsible for your own safety at the event and must not do anything that puts yourself or others at unnecessary risk.

Do not enter any of the water in the area while on your course.
