Individual schools league results are now available on the 'Other' link above or Here.  Team results are below (We still need to know which schools the Y7s have gone to and the results will be finalised once that is done.  Looks like Nethergreen have a 1 point lead over Hunters Bar.  Great to see more complete teams, for those that don't have complete teams try to get your friends along to Millhouses, you only need 4 to count.

Lots of people ran more than one course, which is great.  Just a reminder that if you run the same course again it will be your first run that counts in the league.

Fantastic turnout today for the first event in this years schools league - 430 runs is a record! Results are available above along with splits which show you how long you have taken for each leg. These aren't final yet, if you notice anything that needs correcting let us know This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (we do know that we have the Y7 schools to sort out.)

A huge thank you to all our helpers who coped amazingly with the numbers. Special thanks to Pippa for planning the course.

If anyone hasn't had enough orienteering yet then we have an event at Wombwell (just south of Barnsley) tomorrow.

See you at Millhouses on 1st Oct.

Endcliffe park and the cafe are here 

Registration for courses will open at 1pm.  You can start any time from 1pm - 3pm but the courses close at 3:30pm.

Running alongside the public event is the first event in the Sheffield Federation of School Sports (SFSS) Orienteering League for both Primary and Secondary pupils.  Entry to the schools event is free if your school is a member of the SFSS.  Information about the SFSS Orienteering League is here.  It is not necessary for a teacher to be present from the school.
If you ran last year and have changed schools then you can still use the same Id number but you will need to let us know the name of your new school.

All courses are entry on the day.  You just have to turn up, pick a course and fill in an entry form.  There will be people on hand to help you if you have any questions.

If you ran one of the schools events last year then you should have completed an entry form an been given a number. With the number we are able to add you into the results system much quicker.  You can download an entry form with your details on from the registration page using the registration number and email address.  If you have changed schools then you will be able to complete a change form.

For those who would like to do a second run you will need to complete another entry slip with the same details as before.  You are welcome to fill this out in advance and bring it with you when you download (with the £1 entry fee for the second course) and we can give you a map to save queuing again.

Orienteering Courses Available

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.  Distances are provisional:

In addition to the normal courses listed below, there is also a challenging sprint course (1.1k) using a special 1:1000 scale map.

Course School Years Distance Technical Level Who is it for?


1.1km 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 1.5km 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
Orange Y8,9 2.2km 3

Harder still, the Orange course introduces:

  • Choosing routes - e.g. should I go round the paths to the left or right
  • Using 'Point Features' as control sites
  • Basic use of a compass
Long Orange Y10+ 3.1km 3

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

Light Green 3.3km 4

Ideal for improvers  The navigation difficulty increases and you start to use simple contours and point features.

Venue Details

Endcliffe Park has a good path network for easier courses and small sections of pleasant woodland for more technical courses.
