You have 60 minutes to go from the start to finish via as many controls as possible. You gain points for each control visited but you lose 10 points per minute (or part minute) late back. Points per control vary from 10 to 30. Bonus points (10 per minute under the hour) are available but ONLY if you manage to visit every control.

Food & facilities: It is hoped to make this a social event, so bring your own food and drink as large grassy area for seating. There are food shops located in Verwood (at least a 20 min walk away).
Toilets located at the side of the pavilion, open until 6pm.
