Please make yourself aware of and abide by the British Orienteering Participant Code of Conduct. Key considerations include: we advise the use of facemasks when speaking with people outside your family bubble;
Acting as an ambassador of the sport of orienteering at all times and considering how your actions may appear in the eyes of landowners or members of the public;
Observing social distancing at all times; leave after your race (unless you are helping to collect in controls!)
Use your own hand sanitizer on arrival and departure.
Please limit your time at the event to a minimum to avoid unnecessary contact with others.
Arrival times: - 17:15 to 18.50 - just turn up, head for the Start, picking up your tag and map enroute, sign in with the Start marshal. There is no Registration as such. The Organiser will be at the Download tent if you have any queries. This will be sited close to the Car Park using in a Sarum tent.

On the Course
It's a touch free event - please do not touch the controls, not even with your eTag. Just hover your wrist above the control and check that the eTag flashes. Be aware of other competitors and other users. Keep your distance at all times. Give way at controls, be patient.
Finish and Download
After punching at the Finish please make your way to Download. There's no need to rush, just gather your thoughts, think "social distance" and get your breath back. When you get to Download, sanitize your hands, remove your tag from your wrist and separate the strap from the etag. Place the strap, wound up, into the box provided and place your etag on the table. Take your splits print and drop your tag into the crates. Make your way back to your car. Have a safe journey home.
Results and Routegadget will be available via Racesignup and later on the Club website, hopefully by late Tuesday or Wednesday.
Orienteering is an adventure sport; you are responsible for your own safety at the event and must not do anything that puts yourself or others at unnecessary risk.
