This event kicks off Sheffield's month long Festival of the Outdoors - come and give orienteering a go and enjoy fabulous views across The Outdoor City.
This is the 6th race in the Saturday Series of events aimed at introducing adult and junior newcomers to orienteering and includes the very popular SFSS schools league. Alongside the white to light green courses, there are Short Green and Blue urban courses for adults using both the park and the surrounding intricate housing estates.
Norfolk Park is close to the centre of Sheffield. We will be based at the Centre in the Park (here).
There is a car park off Guildford Avenue however there is only space for about 20 cars. There are plenty of residential roads nearby but please park considerately. By Tram the nearest tram stop is Arbourthorne Road. It is a five minute walk from the tram stop to the Centre in the Park. Registration will be in the centre with the start and finish adjacent. The centre has toilets and a fab cafe.
Registration for the events will open at 12:30pm and you can start any time from 12:30pm – 3pm. All courses close at 3:30pm at which time we will start to collect controls so please make sure you start early enough to complete your course in time.
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 is part of the SFSS and you are in Y3 or above. Information about the SFSS Orienteering League is here
Adults £5, SYO members £4
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 (Or £2 if your previous run was free)
If you would like to go around in a group you would just pay for one entry, plus £1 for each extra map.
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.
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.
A nice warm registration area, lovely loos, a fab cafe and a great children's playground! The SYO juniors will also be selling second hand books and running / orienteering kit to raise funds for their trip to the World Schools Orienteering Champs in April 2019.
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||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.|
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.
Because of the park setting there will be some controls that do not follow line feature. Instead they will be on a point feature (e.g. a tree) but close by. By turning the map so that it matches the ground you will be able to see the next control to go to.
Harder still, the Orange course introduces:
Harder than the Orange, this course will also go outside of the park and will cross minor roads. It is only suitable for secondary aged children or older.
|4||A course which uses both the park and surrounding urban areas. It is as technically hard as we can make it given the area. Over 16s only due to road crossings.|
As for the Short Green but longer and hillier...
SYO Photography Policy
Please be aware that photography is permitted at all our events by spectators and parents though not anywhere where children may be changing e.g. club tent, car park, toilets, changing areas. Whilst the sharing of images taken at our events is not forbidden, please do think about how and where you share them and do not display children's names with the image.
Any parents not wishing their children to be photographed should inform the Event Organiser and a wristband will be issued. Photographers should not take photos of any child wearing a wristband and any that are accidentally taken should be deleted. SYO will not share photos of children on websites, social media, posters, in the press and other publications unless we have parental permission.
If you have any concerns regarding inappropriate or intrusive photography please report them to an Event Official.
Norfolk Heritage Park is a 28 hectare park with a long history, as it is one of the oldest public parks in the country. From 1999 to 2005 the park has been regenerated through a £3.6 million restoration project. New visitor facilities have been constructed, including the Centre in the Park, a multi-purpose community building. The park landscape has been restored to its original Victorian character.
From an orienteering perspective its interest is largely in the woodlands that cover about 25% of the park and the urban surrounds which are currently undergoing re-development. There is a permanent course, maps can be downloaded from the Friends of Norfolk Park website.

Safety & risk
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. If a competitor has a pre-existing medical condition that they think should be declared, please complete a medical form at enquiries. The sealed envelope will only be opened in an emergency.
SYO has an agreed policy on the taking of photographs at events, based on national guidance. This provides a sensible balance between the benefits and risks associated with the taking and use of images. If you are unsure about acceptable practice, please speak to the event organiser. Read our photography policy.
