We've given some Christmas-themed names to the courses -- these do correspond to standard Orienteering colour-graded levels.
If you are not familiar with Orienteering colour-grading --don't worry, we've also provided some plain English descriptions!
NB- the 'climb' given for each course is an estimate, may not be reliable.
The Golden Glow 2.3km 40m climb
The Golden Glow* -- our shortest and simplest course, which can be solved entirely by running on the path network of Star Posts forest.
But at night, all paths are grey! Are you ready for the challenge ?
Please note the remarks about Unaccompanied Juniors. Under 16s are not eligible to enter any course of this event, including this one. U-16s can accompany a Senior entrant on a 1:1 basis, subject to completing a disclaimer available at Registration on the day of the event.

Holly Green 4.7km 50m climb
The Green Holly and Mistletoe is roughly the length and navigation challenge of a 'Green colour' course at a regular orienteering event. But at night it can be difficult to tell light green from dark green! Have fun out there.
Entry limit: 45
The Blue Bauble 6.2km 80m climb
The Blue Bauble is a 'Short Blue' standard course, but on an inky black night you'll need keep your wits about you to find each control.
Entry limit: 60
