Local and schools event
A Local and Schools event at Endcliffe Park
On Sat 9th Sep 2017
A great turnout for the first Saturday event of the autumn. 431 runs is another record I think, amazing given the weather! Really good to see lots of new people today, I hope you enjoyed your courses.
Results are available on the link above along with split times so you can see how you did on each leg. The schools results are available on the 'Other' link above (or here). The team results are below - amazing turnout by Nethergreen - 37 runners!
Thanks to all the volunteers that helped today, coping admirably with the record breaking numbers. If anyone would like to help out at any of the future events then please get in touch.
The next league event is at Meersbrook Park on 7th Oct. Details Here. The following week we are holding the British Schools Score Championships at Rother Valley. A flyer and entry form are available on the event page.
In the meantime there are other opportunities to orienteer around Sheffield. We run training every Wednesday evening - info here. And there are orienteering this Wednesday (13 Sep) at the Edge Campus and at Chelsea Park on Sunday 24th. Information on all the orienteering activies are available on our event page

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.
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...

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.
