Course Information

A "corridor" course of approx 5km which becomes increasingly challenging from beginning to end - follow the route within the corridor in order to visit the marked checkpoints. Short-cuts are possible, and full maps will be available for the less confident!

The map is a 1:4,000 version of the Goldsworth Park map used for the urban event in August.

The route is across playing fields initially, then on paved surfaces all the way.

Registration & Start Times

Starts from 6.15pm. All to finish by 8.00pm.

  • There are no crossings of through roads, but there could be slow-moving traffic in residential areas. Please wear something bright for your own safety.
  • A headlamp/torch is recommended for some short unlit stretches (and to be able to see the map clearly between streetlights!).
  • There is a deep lake in the centre of the map - it should be obvious, even in the dark, but the banks are steep and slippery in places.

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!

Covid-19: Before attending any orienteering activity, all orienteers (including officials, volunteers and coaches) should self-assess for symptoms of COVID-19. 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.

Insurance: All participants are covered by the British Orienteering third-party liability insurance policy. (NB: This is not a personal injury policy).
