A Saturday Afternoon Series event aimed at introducing newcomers to orienteering and includes the event in the SFSS primary and secondary schools orienteering league.
NOTE: Registration and courses will close 15 minutes earlier than normal to give us time to collect controls before the gates shut!
Registration will open at 1pm in the classroom at the Botanical gardens. This is situated down towards the bottom entrance to the gardens off Thompson Road. You can start any time from 1pm – 2:45pm but the courses close at 3:15pm.
Running alongside the public event is an event in the SFSS Orienteering League for both Primary and Secondary pupils. Entry to the schools event is free if your school has entered and you are in Y3 or above. Information about the SFSS Orienteering League is here
Adults £4, SYO members £3
Children £2 (Free for the first run if you are in Y4 or above and your schools is in the SFSS)
Any additional courses will cost an additional £1
If you would like to go around in a group you would just pay for one entry, plus £1 for each extra map.
Travel and parking
Botanical Gardens is best reached from the city centre by the buses that service Ecclesall Road. Parking is off Ecclesall Road in metered bays. Make sure you don’t park in a “Permit holders only” bay or you will get a parking fine!
Toilets near the classroom and a café near the Broomhill entrance.
If you complete a course and there is still time you are welcome to try another.
See below for details on the courses on offer.
|Course||School Years||Distance||Technical Level||Who is it for?|
|1.0km||1||The easiest course and a great place for children to start. The course is entirely on paths and each time you have to make a decision - which path to take, there will be a control point.
Year 3 pupils can compete with Y4s.
|Yellow||Y6,7||1.4km||2||The next step up and a good place for teenagers etc. to start. The course will use paths but also other line features - Fences, streams etc.
It will also no longer have a control everytime you need to decide where you are going. For example you may need to make a couple of turns on paths between controls
Harder still, the Orange course introduces:
Similar difficulty to an orange course, but quite a bit further!
This course is split into 2 parts with part 1 printed on one side, when you get to the last control you turn over to part 2
Experienced orienteers or someone up for a challenge! Rather than carrying a map each control has a map extract that shows the location of the next control. You have to figure out the route and then run to the next control. If you lose your way you have no option but to retrace your steps back to the last control and try again.
|Sprintervals||4 x 1km||3||
Experienced orienteers looking for a hard workout and practicing navigation at speed.
This time the courses have a central first control with a butterfly so you can run head-to-head with another runner, taking the loops in different order.
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.
SYO has an agreed policy on the taking of photographs at events, based on national guidance. This provides a sensible balance between the benefits and risks associated with the taking and use of images. If you are unsure about acceptable practice, please speak to the event organiser. Read our photography policy.
