Download / Enquiries / SI-card collection will be upstairs in the golf clubhouse.
Important:  No muddy shoes are allowed in the clubhouse.  Please leave them at the clubhouse entrance.


The competition area is a golf course.  It consists of very open 'parkland', with short-cut grass interspersed with small copses of trees.  There is no undergrowth, and the area is ideal for fast running.  There are plenty of ridges and minor contour details throughout and several small streams, gullies and footpaths.

The golf greens and bunkers are out of bounds and must not be crossed, but can be useful to aid navigation.

Please note that the golf course is in an exposed, coastal location and the event is taking place in the depths of winter.  If the weather is bad, it may be compulsory to wear or carry a cagoule.  Please come prepared.

and other

Covid 19 and other infections – e.g. influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and adenovirus) continue to circulate in the community.

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 virus transmission during the pre- and post-run activities.


  • Do not attend this event if you have respiratory infection symptoms.
  • Maintain good hand hygiene.
  • Be mindful of other people's space.  Some people may be more concerned than you are about avoiding close contact.

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 Racesignup.  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.
