Saddleworth Runners “O” 2019
23/07/2019 - 7 to 7:30pm start - Crompton Moor, Brushes Clough Car Park
This is an orienteering score event were the controls can be visited in any order with a time limit of one and a half hours. Time penalties will be incurred beyond this time. We will be using the permanent course set up by the GMOA. All controls will be in use, bar two, so you can give yourself a hard run if you wish. You can run alone , in a pair or group. If very new to this try talking an experienced member into partnering you.
Entry Fee:- £3, (£1-20 for map and the rest for the club charity) bring change. Brushes Clough car park is off Buckstones Road. If coming from the Grainsbar end take a right just before the church about two thirds of the way down the hill, the car park is about half a mile up You can start any time between 7 and 7.30 but I advise turning up at least 10 to 15 minutes beforehand to enter and familiarise yourself with the map etc . Equipment:- A4 polybag (although map is water and tear resistant), compass useful but not totally necessary, TWO pens that work (ESSENTIAL), and of course the usual personal clothing for running safely on the hill. Some means of keeping track of time. Results given out in the White Lion, Delph from 21.30 onwards. I think they sell beer as well. Please let me know in advance if you intend to turn up as I have to order the maps in advance.
