Day 3 – Long Distance Race (Cold Ash)

Location:

Cold Ash is to the North-West of Thatcham with easy access from the M4 junction 13. 

Parking and Assembly for this event is in a long field to the North East of the area accessed via a farm track.

Starts will be no more than 100m walk from the Assembly field.

Very large campervans will now also be able to park in the same place as everyone else, due to tracking having been laid down.

Terrain:

Cold Ash is an area of mixed woodland. The area has several gently sloping hills and a fairly extensive path network. 

Map:

1:15,000 and 1:10,000 with 5m contour detail.  Remapped in 2018 by Peel Land Surveys to ISOM2017 using LIDAR data.

Classes:

A and B classes in each of M/W 10, 12, 14, 16

E, L and S classes in each of M/W 18, 20

E, L, S and V classes in M/W 21

L and S classes in each of M/W 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, and M75

W75, M80, W80, M85, W85, M90, W90

Colour classes - White, Yellow, Orange and Light Green

Start Times:

First starts 10.00, last starts 14.00.

Normally 50% of entries ask for Middle start block. So Early block will be 10.00 to about 11.00 and Late block
about 13.00 to 14.00

Definitions:

E = Elite

L = Long; S = Short; V = Very Short - same technical difficulty but different length courses

A and B (for junior courses) are similar to L and S, but the B course will be both shorter and less technical than A.

Colour classes

White course - around 1½km very easy

Yellow - around 2½km easy

Orange - around 3km moderate difficulty

Light green - around 4km hard

Clothing:

British Orienteering requires that all competitors 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.

Dogs:

Dogs are permitted in the Assembly/Car Park field but not on the courses.   We ask that if you bring your dog that you keep it on a lead in the Assembly area and clear up after them.

Officials:

Organiser: Fiona Clough

Planners: Roger Thetford and Katy Stubbs
