Keyne-O

Keyne-O 7 - Campbell Park

Sunday 7th October 2018

The seventh in our series of informal orienteering events suitable for beginners, more experienced orienteers and runners.

If you haven’t tried orienteering before, someone will be available to explain the basics and point you in the right direction.

Entry is on the day so no need to pre-enter. No special equipment is needed - just wear whatever you would for a walk or run in the park.

Controls and Map

Controls are mini-kites with pin punches. The Map is A4 and map scale is 1:10,000 for Run and Trot, 1:5,000 for Amble. We will be using electronic timing to determine your run time but you must still use pin punches to record visits to controls.

Courses

Because of the nature of the area, only the Amble course is suitable for unaccompanied juniors under 16. Ambitious younger competitors who finish the Amble early may want to re-run it in reverse (for no extra charge).

Amble - 2.5km

Suitable for novices, whatever their level of fitness. Does not cross any roads (except by underpasses/bridges).

Trot - 4.5km

Today's course has both park and urban elements. Suitable for adult improvers and experienced orienteers who want a medium-length run. This course is not suitable for competitors under 16 unless accompanied by an adult.

Run - 7.1km

A longer course that is an extensive tour of the area, only suitable for fit and reasonably experienced orienteers. This course is not suitable for competitors under 16 unless accompanied by an adult.

Times

Starts from 10.00 to 12.00 for Amble and Trot, 10:00 to 11:30 for Run.
