Day 3 - Long Race (Beaudesert/Brereton Hayes)

Location:

Beaudesert is just to the north of Cannock Wood.

Terrain:

Beaudesert and Brereton Hayes are forested areas with streams and marshes, and intricate contouring and the famous bell-pits (deep holes with raised edges) proliferating.

Map:

1:15,000 5m contour detail for the longer courses, 1:10,000 5m contour detail for almost everyone else. The TD1 and TD2 courses will be at 1:7,500. Remapped in 2017 by Peel Land Survey to ISOM2017 using LIDAR data for the first time.

Classes:

Long and short classes are available. 

Clothing:

British Orienteering require all competitors to wear clothing that fully covers the torso and legs. There may also be a requirement to carry a hooded waterproof top. If required, there will be notices on the day.

Trail-O:

There will be Pre-O available close to the arena.

Dogs:

Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed in the arena. They are allowed in the large car parking field, but must be on a lead and all mess must be picked up.
