CLOK logo
This event is one of the three urban events that make up the Northern Jubil-O Weekend.
Location:

Parking will be in the car park in front of the Queens Campus Sports Centre.  The grid reference is NZ 445187, the postcode is TS17 6BH and the what3words reference is ///busy.fakes.butterfly.

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.

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 and take first exit at the roundabout.  Follow this road and take the second exit at the next roundabout, which leads you right into the parking area.

Please note that after the final roundabout there are some severe road humps, so drive slowly!

Please note that there will be very limited orienteering signs to this event.

Terrain:

This landscaped business park offers good sprint orienteering on mostly made-up pavement and road surfaces requiring fast decision-making.

The business park has no through traffic and there will be very few vehicles in the competition area during the event.

Contrary to what was said in an earlier version of this flyer, children under the age of 12 do not need to be shadowed by an adult.  However, please note that all the courses go close to the deep water of the River Tees and parents should make their children aware of this.  All competitors should take care when running close to the river.

Covid-19:

Although the Covid-19 restrictions have been relaxed and we hope that the Omicron wave will have subsided by June, the pandemic is not yet over.  Please continue to take precautions to protect yourself and other people ..... including the volunteers who make orienteering events possible.

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:-

  • Please do not attend this event if you have Covid-19 symptoms.  In accordance with Government guidance, if you have Covid-19 symptoms you should stay at home and avoid contact with other people.
  • Please maintain effective social distancing, including from the volunteers on the organising team; e.g. at Download.
  • Before and after your run, avoid unnecessary close contact with people outside your household.
  • Maintain good hand hygiene.
Safety:

A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the Organiser, but please remember that competitors take part at their own risk.  Orienteering is an adventure sport – your safety while orienteering is your own responsibility.

Please make sure that you download even if you do not complete your course.

CLOK recommends that you carry a whistle whilst participating in this (and every) orienteering event.

If you have a relevant medical condition, please add this to your competitor details in SI Entries.  Any information provided will be treated in strict confidence and will only be used if you need medical treatment and are unable to communicate at the time.
