Pre Event Info

SN Saturday Series Series Info

These events are ideally suited to beginners, juniors and family groups who want to try orienteering or move up from school to forest orienteering.

Pre-enter as in the entry details section below. If you don't have a "dibber" (the electronic timing device) leave that part of the entry details blank - you will be allocated one to pick up at the Enquiries tent at the event. You will also pick up your map at the event - at the start.

The location information on the event web page will take you to the parking and / or the event centre (the Southern Navigators flag and the tents that house Enquiries and Download). At the event centre, club members (wearing yellow high visibility jackets) are there to help and advise. The start is usually very close to the event centre, but if not, there will be red and white tapes placed intermittently along the route that you follow to get between the event centre and the start and finish.

If you are new to this sport, please select the Yellow or Orange course. This may seem short but it's the best way to learn. Most families start with a “Yellow” level course which is about 2.5km long and will take around 30-45 minutes. There may not be a legend (key) on the map. A link to the British Orienteering legend can be found at the bottom of the FAQ page: https://www.southernnavigators...

You don’t need any special equipment - Clothing ? Come dressed to run or walk. Leg covering is necessary if you will be going off-path.

You can start your course anytime from 10.00 until 11.30 as long as you are finished before courses close at 12.30 (when controls are collected in). When you finish you must come back to the registration area to “download” your times from your dibber and get your results. Downloading provides a safety check confirming that all participants have returned, so it is important that you visit the “download” before you leave the event.


There are not normally toilets but please check specific event details.
