General Info

This is a 60 minute score course with 40 controls and a penalty of 10 points for each (part) minute over. It's at 1:7500 scale in Street-O style, with different colours to the traditional orienteering maps - the key difference is that white means no access unless clear on the ground.

The "Map" link gives you an A4 (Portrait) pdf to download, Control Descriptions and Safety Notes are included as the 2nd page of the map. To see the score, finishing time and tracks of other runners, use the "Results" , "Tracks" links.

The Start and Finish is at the Pelican crossing South West of the Leisure Centre, near Wild Wood Adventure - on the south side of the A25 (Stoke Park side) - picture below shows westbound A25 - the Start/Finish is the left hand side Pelican control that's visible.

When you pass the Finish control, then it will stop the timer, once you have started and found at least other control.
