A Saturday Afternoon Series event aimed at introducing newcomers to orienteering and includes the third event in the SFSS primary and secondary schools orienteering league.
NOTE: Registration and courses will start and close 15 minutes earlier than normal to give us time to collect controls before the gates shut!
Registration will open at 12:45pm. This is situated down towards the bottom entrance to the gardens off Thompson Road See it on a map (No classroom this year as they are building a new one at the moment!). You can start any time from 12:45 – 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. Please make sure that you run the correct course for your year before running any other course, only your first run will be counted in the schools league.
Adults £4, SYO members £3 (Also members of other orienteering clubs)
Children £2 (Free for the first run if you are in Y3 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 registration and a café near the Broomhill entrance.
If you ran one of the previous schools events in the series 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.
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.
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
|Sprintervals||4 x 1km||3||
Experienced orienteers looking for a hard workout and practicing navigation at speed.
