Start point Start and finish are both at the meeting point.
Format Two courses
  • Rabbit: 3.2km – medium, on the plateau
  • Deer: 5.3km – longer, with hills, for keenies
Straight line distances given – optimum routes are +/- 50% longer. Flags are 15cm kites – timing at each control using SPORTident (SIAC enabled). Bring your SI timing chip if you have one, but if not, you can borrow one of the Club’s. Results will be published.
Map 1:7,500, ISSOM-ish, 5 metre contours, by Julien Gaffuri, 2019 with minor updates. “Zoom” enlargement of a complex maze section. Statues and childrens’ play equipment in the park area are generally NOT mapped. Laser printed on Pretex waterproof paper.
Terrain Mostly urban streets and paths, one part in the d’Coque park. Cross training shoes ideal.
Safety

Please take great care to avoid all moving cars, bikes and buses, especially on the more main roads. You take part entirely at your own risk.

The event is advertised as “for adults” only because the courses cross some busy roads, and are thus not ideal for unaccompanied children.

Afterwards Brasserie Kirchberg is nearby. In its garden if nice weather?
