Nomansland

We are doing our best to put on a full programme of events, but these days it is more likely that events are cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control. We will continue to update the details for this event as our planning proceeds, and open entries when we think there is a strong probability that it will go ahead.

This event will be very limited, in line with British Orienteering’s guidance. In particular:

  • Numbers are limited to 180.
  • You must pre-enter and pay in advance. The event is for members of HH and other clubs only.
  • There will be no on-the-day hire dibbers available just for this event. However, to reduce cross-contamination, HH members can have a dibber for a season (until our event next July) for only £10 + £10 deposit. You can use the dibber at our events or any others you go to. Just select hire dibber when you enter (closing date for this option is 29th December at the latest) . Or you can just buy your own.
  • You should not come if you have symptoms of COVID-19, are living in a household with someone who has a possible or confirmed COVID-19 infection, or have been asked to isolate by NHS Test and Trace. You’ll get a full refund.

Yellow 2.0-3.0 km Fairly easy – navigate along line features such as paths, walls, streams. Some turns with no control flags.
Orange 2.5-3.5 km Moderate – start cutting across country, some controls a bit away from line features.
Light Green 3.0-4.5 km Harder – a range of navigational skills needed to find controls on any mapped feature.
Short Blue 4.5-6.0 km As hard as we can make it on the area.

SAFETY Orienteering is an adventure sport. You take part at your own risk and are responsible for your own safety. A full risk assessment will have been carried out.

You should abide by the British orienteering Covid-19 Code of Conduct. In particular:

  • If you have symptoms of COVID-19, are living in a household with someone who has a possible or confirmed COVID-19 infection, or have been asked to isolate by NHS Test and Trace, you should not come. You’ll get a full refund.
  • Before, during and after your run, maintain distance from other runners and other park users.
  • You should not need to touch anything except the one map you pick up and your splits printout. When punching at a control, you don’t need to touch the control. Hand sanitiser is available – please use it.
RESULTS Interim results will be published direct to the club website every few minutes during the event. There will be no printed results (apart from your own splits) or WiFi available, so there is no need to hang around.

Full results will be published to the same location and to Routegadget; we aim to do so on the day of the event.
