Results

We had a few downloads that were corrupted so results took a while - you will see that a few are missing splits.

Also apologies to the handful of early starters who were affected for several minutes by the missing control 2 on Long and Short, and many thanks to Neil Kitching who found it and replaced it in the correct position fairly rapidly.

Night Events

Night Events run on a regular basis through the dark winter nights.

The events will provide some great orienteering and merit top billing in your diary! There will be three courses provided - a longer TD5 course, a TD5 short course, and an easier Orange/Light Green course (where possible). The easier course is intended for people who have some day orienteering experience and who wish to try night orienteering, however remember that even Orange courses are more difficult at night-time! The courses may be gaffled to provide additional challenge.

Juniors (those who have not had their 16th birthday) may not compete independently of an adult in Night races unless (a) they have successfully completed three daytime races at TD5 standard, and (b) they have successfully completed two Night races with an experienced shadow, at either Long or Short level (novice courses don't count). The Night series co-ordinator will be able to advise which juniors are included in this.
