Thank you for coming. We were very lucky to be able to plan courses in such a lovely area, with little undergrowth for this time of year. It's a very safe area to hang controls so we were able to collect some the morning after the event. Even the weather was OK. Many people said they enjoyed their courses - thanks for the positive feedback.

Well done on Short Blue to Aidan Smith, 4th in this year's Junior World Orienteering Championships in Norway, and also to the SHUOC boys who are regular front runners in the local fell races. Al Buckley managed to sneak in amongst the youngsters.

We have been lenient with the results as a small number of competitors missed one of the controls with an SI unit on their course. In particular on Green, three competitors (* above) missed the last control #31.

See you again in the woods.

Monika and Ian Cooper

Venue description - although the South West part of the area has been affected by windblown, this is a lovely fast runnable area with a mix of open woodland, interwoven grazing land and woodland and open grazing land. This as an excellent area for evening informal events. Longer courses will cross a forest road, which must be crossed at the marked crossing points. You may encounter the occasional walker on the open grazing land, but otherwise you should encounter noone else on the area.
Social - after the event we will gather at The 3 Merry Lads for a buffet, which is being very kindly provided for free to SYO members by the landlords, Jane and Barry. We shall be donating the proceeds from the event to a charity of their choice. Please This email address is being protected from spambots.

Venue Details

Redmires Woods are the woodlands west of the three Redmires reservoirs.    Most of the map is mature coniferous woodland with minimal undergrowth providing superb running, but at the northern edge it opens out to moorland sheep pasture.  There are few paths.  The area is dotted with quarry /mining workings, some of which provide excellent technical orienteering.

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.
