Registration and Parking
Free parking in Joymount Car park, beside Marine Gardens. If the weather is fine we will meet here for registration and briefing if the weather is poor we may meet in the back (Garden Room) of Ownies Bar which is situated just across the road. We will be using Ownies to download and meet up afterwards.
There will be 30 controls and you will have 45 minutes to visit as many as possible. Controls 1-10 are worth 10 points, 11-20 worth 20 points and 21-30 worth 30 points. For every minute or part minute you are late you will be deducted 10 points.
This is an urban course using a section of the 1:4000 scale map which Bill Simpson drew for the British Urban League event last May.
We will be using MapRun. If you haven’t already done so, please can you download this app onto your phone or Garmin watch and register your details. Click on this link to get the Quick Guide – MapRun® (weebly.com)

This is an urban course with road crossings. Planning has taken into account busy roads with safe crossing points marked on the map, optimal routes will use these crossing points. Please give way to other pedestrian and vehicular traffic and always adhere to the highway code.
