The area is mostly grassy with little technical difficulty to slow you down … hence slightly longer distances. Old spoil heaps have loose, steep sides; plan your route for your ability.

Maps for Easy course will be handed out at Registration. Most of the course follows line features but some of the controls are a short distance away. To ensure success!, and reduce risk of going astray, you are encouraged to coach less experienced runners before they set off on their run. Shadowing is fine too. Help and advice is also available at Registration.

There is an old mine which has a dangerous crag above the entrance which is not fenced. This area, in a deep depression, is clearly shown in NW quarter of the map as Out of Bounds. All courses pass within 100m so everybody should take care and keep away. Easy course is following a clear earthbank line feature in this area; there will be no danger as long as runners stay with the earthbank to their next control.

Other Notes: 

New to Night Orienteering?
You need to bring a decent head torch (and maybe a spare) and make sure to dress appropriately for the weather.
The first series of events, up to Christmas tend to be on easier areas so are suitable for those trying night orienteering for the first time.
Younger and/or inexperienced orienteers should be accompanied.
