Although most of the Covid-19 restrictions have been relaxed, the pandemic is not yet over, and the wave of Omicron infections is a significant concern.

Orienteering is an outdoor, naturally socially-distanced sport.  However, although you should be relatively safe when you are out on your run, there is a risk of Covid-19 transmission during the pre- and post-run activities.

Given that:-

  • You must not come to this (or any other) event if you have Covid-19 symptoms or if should be self-isolating in accordance with Government guidance.
  • Please maintain effective social distancing, including from the Registration team.  At this event, please don't gather in the Registration area.  Only one person should approach the Registration table at any time.
  • Before and after your run, avoid unnecessary close contact with people outside your household.
  • Wear a face mask when you are indoors and there are other people around.  At this event, please wear a face mask when you register and, if possible, when you come to hand in your control card after your run.
  • Maintain good hand hygiene.

Parking is in the Myton House Farm pub Ingleby Barwick.  The entrance to the car park is off Ingleby Way at grid reference NZ 443139.  The What3words reference is ///best.tuned.echo and the postcode is TS17 0WB.

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 if you specify your starting location.

Please park at far (i.e. south) end of the car park.

Registration will be in the entrance of the Myton House Farm pub.


Urban area.

Important notes:

  • You may need to cross dual carriageways.  If so, please use the marked crossing points, which are either underpasses or pedestrian crossings.
  • Some of the other roads may be busy with large volumes of homeward-bound traffic at the end of the working day.  Please take care.
  • One potential route will involve going along a muddy woodland path – with no street lights – for approximately 100 metres.
  • Many of the footpaths have parallel cycle paths.  Please keep to the grey / black footpaths and take care when running across the cycle paths.
  • Anyone under 16 on the day of the event must be accompanied by an adult.

Please bring:

  • A torch – preferably a head torch.
  • Hi-viz clothing so that you can be seen while you're running ..... particularly by drivers, but also by pedestrians.
  • A pen to write the numbers on your control card.  (See the Format section below.)
  • A watch that you can use to time your 45 minutes.  Please note that this event will be self-timed.  We are trusting participants to report their total running times accurately.

45 minute score.

Visit as many as controls as you can within the 45-minute time limit.  Each control is worth 10 points.  If you exceed the time limit you will lose 5 points for each minute or part minute that you are late getting to the Finish.

Score events involve the extra challenges of (a) deciding the best sequence of controls to visit and (b) judging whether you have time to visit that one last control and still get back to the Finish in time to avoid losing points due to lateness.

Each control is at a lamp post.  Each lamp post is identified by a number (3 or 4 digits).  The control card gives the first 1 or 2 digits for each control.  You need to write the rest of the digits in the relevant box on the control card.  For example, if the lamp post number at control #4 is 6789 then box 4 on the control card will be labelled 67 and you need to write down 89 in that box.

Please note that there may be multiple lamp posts close to the control.  The dot in the centre of the control circle on the map marks the exact location of the lamp post.  This should, for example, let you see which side of the road the lamp post is on.


The map will be a Street-O map from the Open Orienteering web site.  The map shows roads, footpaths and open areas (both rough and grass), but it is not a standard urban orienteering map.

The map scale is 1:10,000.


Registration will be open 6 p.m. – 6:45 p.m.

Starts will be 6 p.m. – 6.45 p.m.

The Start and Finish are approximately 2 minutes' walk from the Myton House Farm pub.

As it is a 45 minute score event, everyone should be finished by 7.30 p.m.


When you register, you will receive a map and a control card.

As precautions against transmission of Covid-19, please:

  • Send one member of your household to register for all the participating household members.
  • Do not gather in the Registration area.  Only one person should approach the Registration table at a time.
  • Wear a face mask when you are at the Registration table.
Juniors / Students:     £1.00

You can pay in cash or you can ask for the entry fee to be added to your account in the CLOK Entry System.  You can only take the second option if (a) you are the account holder or (b) you have the account holder's permission for the entry fee to be added to his or her account.


Please hand in your completed control card at Registration after your run.

Results will be published on the CLOK web site as soon as possible after the event.
