This round of the South England Orienteering Urban League (SEOUL) takes place near Farnborough, Hampshire on an area which is 80% new to competitive orienteering. The Totland estate to the north of the town is high density former local authority housing with many alleys and courtyards, where you can expect complex and rapid route decisions. All courses (except Young Junior) visit this area. The two longest courses also venture west to Pinewood Park with some longer legs through lower density housing. There are open spaces along the Cove Brook and a large playing field area traversed by the longer courses. Course lengths are towards the upper end of urban guidelines. (For an indication of likely running times see results from SN Goldsworth/Horsell event in August 2021 – fast and flat, distances and terrain are comparable).

Important Event Information


Safety and Risk:
A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser. Competitors are responsible for their own personal safety and for assessing their own abilities to complete the course. Neither Southern Navigators, the landowner or British Orienteering can be held liable for any accident or other incident arising while undertaking the event. Participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event - including clothing appropriate for the conditions, and if required, a means of summoning assistance (e.g. phone or whistle).

After forest orienteering, please check thoroughly for ticks and remove immediately if you find them. Lyme Disease is on the increase in the South East!

If you, or anyone you live with, have one or more of these symptoms you should not attend any sporting activity, even if your symptoms are mild.
