Hope you all enjoyed your run around Shirebrook. Looks like lots of you enjoyed the courses planned by Tom Entwistle, thank you to him for all his efforts and to all our other helpers.  Our control collectors found a Rab base layer whilst they were picking up controls and a woolly hat was left around the results.  If you would like to claim either or spot an error in the results then please This email address is being protected from spambots.

Results are above along with split times for each leg.  Schools individual results are available above (on the 'other' link). Schools and year group results are below.  We have decided to take out the leg to the tunnel on the longer courses for a variety of reasons.

Courses

See below for details on the courses on offer. Course lengths are indicative and may well change subject to final planning and controlling.

Course School Years Distance Technical Level Who is it for?
White

Y3/4

Y5

 

1.2km

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

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



3.1km

 

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, 11


3.8km

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  G12, 13


3.8km

5 As technically difficult as the area will allow.

Blue

 B12, 13


4.5km

5 As per the green course but further in distance.
