A one hour score course, with control sites worth between 10 and 50 points mostly, but not exclusively according to how far away they are. You will be given a choice of three answers – circle the correct one.

Your score will be reduced by 2% of the points scored for every minute or part minute late.

This is a control visiting event! Circling answers at controls you have not visited, on the off chance you get it right, is cheating.

League Scoring

The leading man and woman will score 100 points, second place 99 etc.
For the handicap competition, your score will be increased by a multiple depending on your age and sex, and the resultant points used in the same way.

The map is 1:10,000, black and white and some limited colours, with only streets, paths some open areas & waterways marked. It will either be printed on waterproof paper, with the clues on the back, or be printed on paper with a separate clue sheet, with a polythene bag.
