Entry limit: 20

Orange 3.2km 40m climb
Controls are on or near paths with some route choice. Good for progressing juniors and adults who are reasonably confident reading a map.
Entry limit: 15
Entered: 7

Green 5.0km 85m climb
Controls are away from paths giving more navigational challenge. Suitable for those with some experience.
Entry limit: 41
Entered: 41

Blue 6.8km 120m climb
As technically as hard as we can make it; for experienced orienteers.

For all the above courses where you do the controls in a set order, the distances are measured in straight lines between the checkpoints so you will cover a bit longer distance than stated.

Entry limit: 30
Entered: 23

Event Information

You must not attend if you or a member of your household has COVID-19 symptoms or if you are required to self isolate.

You must adhere to the British Orienteering Participant Code of Conduct.

Event centre
The event centre is a tent near to the start of the path leading from the car park to the Visitor Centre. Look for the tall dark blue sail banner. Easy access from the A2 from the same exit as for Gravesend East. Follow the Brown tourist signs.

There are toilets and a cafe near to the Event Centre. There is a children's playground a little further away close to the lake.

Parking costs £1.60 for up to one hour, £2.70 for up to two hours and £3.60 for all day.

These two short videos will hopefully give you a good idea of what you will be doing Videos.

The woods
Jeskyns is a mixture of open land and immature forest of varying density. Ashenbank is mainly mature deciduous forest.

A small herd of highland cattle sometimes roam Ashenbank Wood. These attractive animals create routes through the undergrowth. Although they are docile, keep a wide berth when near to them to avoid frightening them.

Electronic punching
Electronic punching will be used and the controls will be activated for contactless punching for anyone with a contactless SI dibber.

Hired dibbers will be in individual envelopes for collection at Enquiries.

Everyone must punch at the start and finish as these are not set up for contactless recording.

Control descriptions
Control descriptions are printed on the map. For those who prefer to also have loose control descriptions to save opening and refolding the map, these will be available at the start.

Finish and Download
After finishing, please proceed directly to Download. Your splits print out will be handed to you. Hired SI dibbers should then be deposited in a pink container nearby.

Results will not be on display at the event but we hope to be providing a QR code link to live results at the event. They will also be on the DFOK website after the event.

Refund policy
If you have entered but are unable to attend the event, if you contact the Organiser by email no later than 9pm on the day before the event, a full credit for a future DFOK event will be given or a refund of your entry fee minus the small entry system provider charges.

We are grateful to Forestry England and Woodland Trust for permission to use the area.
