Location:

Registration will be in the Queens Campus Sports Centre (TS17 6BH : Gr NZ455188) with car parking available just outside the centre.

Click on the link to see a map.  You can zoom in (and, optionally, switch to Satellite mode) to see the details of the final approach to the event.  You can also get directions by putting in your starting location.

The easiest approach is from the Teesside Park junction on the A66 (one junction west of the A19 intersection).  Proceed north from that junction, cross over the railways, turn left at the first roundabout (from where the event will be O-signed) and take the second exit from the second roundabout.

Terrain: The two parts of the competition area offer urban style orienteering, with the running on grass or pavement.  Shorts are allowed on some courses.  Expect interesting route choices and the need for fast decision-making.  The area around Tees Barrage is particularly "novel" for orienteering.
