    No fee – but please let Enable JavaScript to view protected content. know if you plan to come and how many people you will be, so maps can be printed.

    All welcome – members or not – please bring friends who haven’t orienteered before

    Start point

    Start and finish are both at the meeting point.

    Format

    Three courses

    Squirrel 1.9km – very easy, for beginners

    Rabbit 4.3km – medium, for adults

    Deer 6.3km – longer, with hills, for keenies

    Control flags are 15cm kites – with “pin” punches.

    1:5,000 (Squirrel), 1:7,500 (Rabbit), or 1:10,000 (Deer) ISSOM. Downloaded from Open Orienteering Maps, so no contours (but lots on the ground!), and no walk or fight forest mapped. Some map corrections, but the map is still rather inaccurate in the forested areas. Laser printed on Pertex waterproof paper (backs of old Luxembourg City Race maps).

    Terrain

    Half residential urban streets, half woodland with many paths that are steep and muddy in places. “Cross” training shoes optimal.

    Safety

    Please take great care to avoid all moving cars, bikes and buses, especially on the more main roads. Children under 12 should be with an adult. You take part entirely at your own risk.
