Further Information

There are four courses on offer tonight.

  • Sprint - 3.9km with 45m of climb. Not suitable for unaccompanied under-16's
  • Yellow - 2.2km with 45m of climb. Suitable for families and less-experienced orienteers. On well-made paths.
  • Orange - 3km with 65m of climb. Suitable for more experienced newcomers and adult novices. Mostly on woodland paths and open parkland.
  • Green - 5,3km with 125m of climb. A longer course to challenge the navigational abilities of experienced orienteers. Not for the faint of heart!

Please be advised that the vegetation in Callendar Park is "up" at present. Fortunately it's mostly of the ferny variety rather than the jaggy stuff, but full body cover is advised, particularly for the Green course.

As this is the final event of the series, a social event is planned for afterwards at Benny T's Fish Restaurant, which is adjacent to the eastern end of the park.

Hope to see you all there.
