Newsflash

British Orienteering has published updated guidance about coronavirus and orienteering, requiring that all orienteering events be cancelled at this time. SYO has therefore followed this advice and cancelled all events within the next few months.

The SYO committee is discussing the extent to which other activities (e.g. permanent and temporary course orienteering) may continue if they are consistent with British Orienteering and UK government guidelines. More details will follow in due course.

Information

This event is part of 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 - although a large part of these courses are urban we would advise using studded shoes as there are still plenty of grassy slopes to negotiate. We have a map extension this year so the blue & green courses visit brand new terrain!

Location

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.

Timings

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.

Schools Event

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

Costs

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.

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

A nice warm registration area, lovely loos, a fab cafe and a great children's playground! The SYO juniors will also be selling running / orienteering kit to raise funds for junior competitions.

Courses

Courses white to orange remain within the park while light green, green and blue extend to the surrounding urban area.

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

1.5km
35m

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.
Yellow Y6,7 1.8km
45m
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.

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.

Orange Y8,9 2.2km
65m
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
  • Basic use of a compass
Light green Y10+ 3.0km
80m
4

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.

Short Green

Age 16+ 3.6km
120m
 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.

Although a large part of this and the Blue course are urban we would advise using studded shoes as there are still plenty of grassy slopes to negotiate

Blue  Age 16+

5.6km
180m

 4

As for the Short Green but longer and hillier...

Venue Details

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.

Mapping History:
