Venue Details

Weston Park is 5-hectare traditional park very near the City Centre.  Events there usually have courses that extend into Crookes Valley Park to the NW and around the buildings and grounds of Sheffield University Main Campus.  The combination of complex urban terrain and runnable parkland makes for entertaining orienteering.  The Weston Park Museum in one corner is an interesting family-friendly museum.

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.
