The May Saturday League event is now at Nomansland. It was moved from Croxley Green because a lot of scrub clearance is going on there. We can make a better map in 2017!

The LG and Blue courses involve unmanned road crossings and competitors must exercise care – traffic in the area can be fast-moving . For this reason, unaccompanied U16s are not permitted to enter these classes.
Orienteering is an adventure sport. You take part at your own risk and are responsible for your own safety.
