This is the Eborienteers Club Championships but, as at all events, everyone is welcome whether beginner or expert. You will receive a detailed large scale map of Clifton Backies Nature Reserve (a former World War II airfield, now scrubland on its way to becoming deciduous forest).
You will have to navigate around a course of about 2 miles in length – it will (should) take you less than an hour. Bring a compass and wear outdoor clothing. You will be timed and “proper” orienteers will be running, but it’s sensible for beginners to walk and avoid getting lost.
