Limited courses Regional event at Cowms Rocks

Export ICS

Start Times Sun 19th Sep 2021 at 11:00 - 12:15

Cowm's rock was first used for orienteering in 2019 for the JIRCs individual day. South Yorkshire orienteers are now holding a limited regional event on Sunday 19th September 2021. There will be 5 TD5 courses from Green to Black, offering technical orienteering on a moorland plateau and surrounding slopes with erosion and landslip features. There is a 2km walk to the start and a steep but runnable descent to the finish through grazed fields. No shorter or less technical courses are on offer due to restricted numbers and the nature of the terrain. Starts will be from 1100-1215, together with the long walk to the start, split starts will be difficult and if the weather is anything but sunny young children may not enjoy the day. Please contact the organiser directly if you would like to try and have a split start.

Entries on Fabian 4 will open on 26th August 2021 once full permission is confirmed.
