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" leave that part of the entry details blank - you will be allocated one to pick up at the event.
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...
At the event, club members (wearing yellow high visibility jackets) are there to help and advise.
You don’t need any special equipment - Clothing ? Come dressed to run or walk
You can start your course anytime up until 11.30 as long as you are finished before 12.30 (when courses close). 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.
Series Coordinator: David Lane

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.
