Pre-entry :There is NO pre-entry for this event. Entry on the day only - first come first served.

This event will use the EMIT 'Touch Free' electronic system. E-tags will be available free of charge on the day, but competitors will be charged for any loss (lost or non-returned E-tags will be charged at £55). Unlike previous systems the E-tag is worn much like an SI dibber (on the finger) and needs to be passed within about 10-15cm of the control box. There is a small red LED on the E-tag which flashes for about 10 seconds indicating a successful pass. It will be your responsibility to check - do not try to pass the control too fast. There is no clear station for this system as the E-tag is cleared at the start control and stopped at the finish. There will be a sample control near registration for you to see the E-tag in action. Instruction in the use of the system will be available on the day.

Map & area :Richmond (kindly loaned to us by Phill Batts) - Scale 1:4000, 5m contours, symbols to ISSOM2007, surveyed and drawn by Phill Batts (CLOK). Maps will only have a limited legend. The map is currently A3 in size (final size pending final planning), will be printed on waterproof paper and have the courses overprinted. Previous maps and courses can be viewd on the BAOC website.
Control desc :will be in written format for Course 6, but pictorial for all other courses. They can be downloaded here nearer the event. Click here for a copy of the IOF pictorial control descriptions.
