Pre Event Info

SN Saturday Series Old 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.

Club members (wearing yellow high visibility jackets) are there to help. Just turn up on the day between 9.30 and 11.00 dressed to run or walk.

You don’t need any special equipment. Go to registration to pay for your map and electronic timing “dibber” hire and the helpers will suggest a suitable course. Most families start with a “Yellow” level course which is about 2.5km long and will take around 30-45 minutes. If you would like any help or advice, ask at registration. You can start your course anytime up until 11.30 and when you finish you should come back to the registration area to “download” your times 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.

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).
