Pre Event Info

SN Wednesday Evening Training Series Info

Training open to all club members. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult when urban based.

Directions / Parking

Trackside along the Old Guildford Road , nearest postcode GU16 6PH. Approach from the west (Frimley Green) end of Old Guildford Road, as this is tarmac; the east (Tunnel Hill) end is very rough unmade road and often blocked by fly tipping. (Note also that the railway bridge at the end of Deepcut Bridge Road is still very likely to be closed, so if travelling from the north you may have to detour via Frimley Green.) Park near the end of the tarmac section, which is about 700m after you turn off the B3012, there is plenty of trackside parking, please make sure that your car is completely clear of the road and not blocking any gates. I will be set up a couple of hundred meters east of where the tarmac ends at SU903558, there is little usable parking beyond this point.

Course Information

One course of 4.3km, with around 200m of climb, although there will be a shortcut to halve this. Bracken is high, but I have tried to avoid the worst bits and also the areas of nasty brashings left by the foresters.

It is flags only, so time yourself. Maps are on plain paper so bring a bag if you have one.

Entry Details

Free to club members; During Covid-19 restrictions Summer training is only available to members of SN

Registration & Start Times

Starts will be from 18.15 and I will collect the flags at 20.00

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. These are:

  • A high temperature.
  • A new, continuous cough.
  • A loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste.

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.

If you have been informed that you need to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace (or are required to self-isolate in relation to travel), you must do so. You should not leave your isolation location in order to participate in sport and physical activity.

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

Privacy: If you enter an event or activity for which we publish results your name will appear in the results section of this website. In addition we may seek to have the results published elsewhere, e.g by local newpapers. Read our data protection page to see how we look after your personal data.
