Fantastic to see such a good turnout despite the weather. Thank you to all our volunteers who had extra work to do as the building wasn't available as they are carrying our repairs. (That also meant us going back to basics with the toilet when we weren't able to get any of our normal suppliers to cover the event).

Results, splits and individual schools results are available on the links above (use the 'other' link to get to the schools results).  Team results are below.

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

Y3/4

Y5

1km
20m 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 1.9km
30m 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 every time 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 2.7km
65m 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

 

Light Green

 Y10

 Y11

3.8km
80m Climb
4

 

Ideal for improvers or confident adult beginners. The navigation difficulty increases - you will be using simple contours and point features. There's often a catching feature beyond the control to stop you going to far wrong.

 

Green  

4.4km
110m climb

5 As technically difficult as the area will allow.

 

Blue

 

5.6km
120m climb

5 As per the green course but further in distance.

Venue Details

The Reserve is open to the public all year round.  Local Nature Reserve status was gained for the valley in 1999".  A booklet 'Shire Brook, The Forgotten Valley', written by local people about the fascinating history of the valley is described here.  As well as the Shire Brook Valley Visitor Centre, the reserve also contains Birley Spa Victorian Bathhouse.
