Beyond Orienteering (Dorset)
The beyond Orienteering event is one that requires navigational skills using a map and compass to navigate from point to point. You will need to move at speed ( except the family event) in a mix of unusual and possibly unfamiliar terrain. Participants will be given a topographical map, a specially prepared orienteering map, which you will use to find control points.
With multiple routes occurring on the same day its possible there may be two or three control points together, ensure you stamp your card with the correct one for your course.
The long course is a mix of stunning Dorset wide open countryside, woodland,paths and some urban areas, of course there are a few hills to slow you down you will need to study your map before the start and plan what you believe will be the fastest route to secure the most points, Its set over an approx distance of 21 km squared and will be run to the following rules.
There will be 15 control points over the complete course and a strict time limit of TWO HOURS, you must be back at the finish by 12.00 or sooner if you complete the course.
Each control point has a value (points) added to it, the further out controls will have a higher point value, so when you plan your route, you need to think about route+points+time to finish. The 15 control points will be, nine control points worth 1 point each and a further six control points of different colors : yellow (2 points), green (3), brown (4), blue (5), pink (6), black (7).
The person or persons with the highest points, who returns in the fastest time will be declared the winner.(On count-back).
