View Results

This is the first of a series of three orienteering races that are designed with beginners in mind. We are expecting that many people who come to this event will not have orienteered much before so there will be extra help for newcopmers to the sport.

The Start will be near the Charles Ashmore Road entrance.

There will be a range of courses from Easy to Hard.

The cost is £2 for Adults; £1 for Juniors and £3 for Families.

Meet between 10am and 12.30pm

Venue Details

Graves park is Sheffield’s largest park and arguably provides the widest variety of orienteering terrain.  As well as a good path network and open spaces, there are wooded valleys, steepening at the west, with old mineral workings providing a small area of interesting contour detail.

Non-orienteering attractions include a café and a rare-breeds animal farm.

Safety & risk

A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event. If a competitor has a pre-existing medical condition that they think should be declared, please complete a medical form at enquiries. The sealed envelope will only be opened in an emergency.
