Evening urban Activity

Street event. U-16s must be accompanied by an adult.

Bring a pencil, a watch/timing device, and a headlamp or torch for winter events

Directions / Parking

Parking should be free from 18:30 (£1 per hour earlier), but please check. Look for a Silver Ford Galaxy hopefully near the public loos!

Course Information

45-minute score course. Torch/headtorch essential as many little side roads are quaintly cobbled plus there seems to be a lack of many lamp posts down some side streets and alleys. Bring a map bag with you in case I have to resort to paper maps (hoping maps will be back) and of course the obligatory writing implement to record your finds. Normal road trainers will be fine to run in.

There are over 40 control sites to find, with plenty for those who want to walk/jog to those who want more of a challenge to get them all. Control sites consist of a mix between the usual lamp post numbers and multi-choice tick box.

Finally there are lots of places to eat within Farnham to recharge your batteries.

Entry Details

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).
