Description

Well done for everyone getting out on what turned out to be a cold and damp day...  Results are available on the links above including split times.  Individual Schools League results are available on the 'Other' link above or here.  Team results are available below.

A huge thank you to all our helpers today.  With lots of people helping it meant that everyone who wanted to run was able to (and hopefully no one got too cold.)

Facilities

Whirlow Brook Hall will be providing drinks and snacks.  Toilets are available at the hall.

Entries

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 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.

Courses

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?
White

Y4,5

1.3km
40m climb
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 1.8km
55m climb
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
75m climb
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

Those doing either of the Orange courses need to be able to judge distances, orientate the map using surrounding features and a compass, use attack points and be bold enough to venture off paths for up to 30 metres

Long Orange Y10+ 4.2km
110m climb
3

Similar difficulty to an orange course, but a bit further!

Light Green   3.6km
125m climb
4

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

 

Short Green  

2.8km
115m climb

5 As technically hard as the area allows. Avoids the most physical parts.
Green   4.7km
210m climb
5

As technically and physically hard as the area allows.
