WCOC Night Series 2018-19 Post Xmas…

In the New Year the venues get more technical and wilder, and so are not suitable for novice juniors at night. However, the intention is, where appropriate, to offer a lower technical difficulty (3-4 km) ‘Nighthawk’ course suitable for novice adults, as well as the usual Long (4-5 km) and Short (2-3 km) courses.

You will need a good lamp or light, preferably a headtorch to leave your hands free for the map and compass! The events really are great fun, and because you have to be sure of your location at all times, your orienteering skills will improve no end.  

The weather will generally be cold and wet, with underfoot conditions muddy, icy, or if we're very lucky snowy! The conditions will dictate the safety requirements. Clothing suitable for the terrain and conditions should be worn, so come prepared.

It is recommended that you carry a whistle and spare batteries/torch. It is also advised that you wear some form of reflective clothing in the unlikely event of a search for a competitor who is hurt, unable to walk or is concussed). This shouldn’t be too difficult as most modern clothing, shoes, back packs or bum bags have some reflective sections or flashes. However, some reflective armbands will also be available at registration.

Starts are from 5.45 – 7.15 pm and courses will close promptly at 8.30 pm (unless otherwise indicated at registration). Earlier starts may be allowed if the planner is ready to go. ALL COMPETITORS SHOULD ENSURE THAT THEY REGISTER BEFORE RUNNING AND HAVE RETURNED TO REGISTRATION BY THE COURSE CLOSE TIME, EVEN IF THEY HAVE NOT COMPLETED THE COURSE. If you arrive late please consider running a shorter course to ensure you have returned by course close time.
