Local and schools event
A Schools event at Endcliffe Park
On Sat 10th Sep 2016 from 13:00 until 15:00
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.
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.

This is the first combined Sheffield Schools and Saturday Afternoon event in the autumn series. The series of events are perfect for introducing new people to the sport and also provide training opportunities to all orienteers. This is also the first event in the popular schools league
Based outside the cafe in Endcliffe park this session is suitable for all ages and abilities.
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.
Travel and parking
Parking on the streets around the park mainly Riverdale Road and Rustlings Road. Buses pass the park regularly. Plan your journey here and use a destination of 'Bingham Park, Rustlings Road/Endcliffe Park, 37020635'
Toilets, café and playground close to registration.
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.
If this will be the first event you have attended this year then please go the the registration page and enter your details. If you don't get chance to do this before the event then you can still register at the event.
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
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
Ideal for improvers The navigation difficulty increases and you start to use simple contours and point features.
Endcliffe Park has a good path network for easier courses and small sections of pleasant woodland for more technical courses.More details about Endcliffe Park...
