Weather alert

There is an amber weather alert for snow/ice and freezing rain on Saturday 15th. We very much hope that the SoSOL will not be affected but if we cannot ensure safe access to the car park and Scout Barn, we may have to postpone the event. Please check the website on Sunday morning - after 9am - before leaving home.

General information

Barrwood is a wonderful, compact area of highly diverse terrain that offers a little of every type of orienteering. A very active Scout camp, it has undergone some significant path work over the last couple of years, but the woods, open land and marshes (!) remain as delightful as ever.

We will have access to the (unheated!) Scout barn, a short walk from the car park, which will act as the event hub and from where we will be providing soup, cakes and festive fayre for sale in aid of Dougal Spenceley's World Challenge expedition to Madagascar. Come along and enjoy a fun, sociable event to round off a fine year of orienteering.

Courses:

  • Brown – 6.2k
  • Blue – 4.7k
  • Green – 3.2k
  • Light Green – 3.1k
  • Short Green – 2.3k
  • Orange – 2.6k
  • Yellow – 1.9k

There will also be a string course located next to the Scout Barn for our younger competitors.

Entry fees: £8 adults, £5 juniors and full-time students. Please pre-enter on nav.run before Weds 12th December to secure a map. Limited entry on the day will be available, maps permitting, for a £1 surcharge/map. Registration from 10:30 - 12:30 for starts from 11:00-13:00.
