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.

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.

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.

Facilities

Toilets and a refreshment stand run by the SYO juniors selling hot and cold drinks and cakes. Proceeds will go to the Dave Hollinger Fund. 

Safety

The area has several popular mountain bike trails, courses are designed so that you should not need to run along them and please be very careful when crossing them. 

The blue & green courses cross numerous roads. Under 16s are only allowed to compete on these courses if shadowed by an adult.

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 Who is it for?
White

Y4,5

1.1km

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 2.2km

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 2.6km

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. This is a good place for adults to start.

Light Green Y10+ 3.6km

Ideal for improvers or confident adult beginners. The navigation difficulty increases - you will be using simple contours and point features.

Green  

3.8km

 

As technically hard as the area allows.  You'll be experiencing a mixture of open heathland, mature woodland & technical urban terrain.

You will be crossing Shirecliffe Road so please take care. 

Blue  

5.6km

 

As technically hard as the area allows.  You'll be  experiencing a mixture of open heathland, mature woodland & technical urban terrain.

You will be crossing Shirecliffe Road so please take care. 

Safety & risk
