Location of Enquiries and Download
Enquiries will be near the car park. What3words:

If you are new to orienteering, please come along to Enquiries and there will be people around who will be able to answer your questions, sort out your hired dibber, talk you through how the start works and point you in the direction of the start (where you will pick up your map).

You must download once you have finished. This is a safety check!

The start will be within 100m of the Enquiries flag and tent.
You will need to visit Enquiries if you are hiring a dibber. Otherwise, you can go straight to the start as you will have pre-entered on racesignup
At the start, there will be people there to help if you need it.

Start Times

Start times have been added to your sign up to prevent long queues at the start. However, these are advisory only. We won't be checking!

Cars and Parking
