RouteGadget

Is a web app for sharing and comparing orienteering routes. You can draw your own route or upload a GPS track from your watch. It also allows you to watch an animated replay with a simulated mass start.

SOG Series Info

SOGs are friendly club events where children and newcomers are very welcome. Yellow and Orange courses are suitable for children to run on their own with a bit of practice. Adults are welcome to shadow children until they are confident to go on their own. Green and Blue courses are run or walked by any age group - you can race competitively or just enjoy the woodland.

There are two series of events - autumn and spring, of approximately 10 events each. Electronic timing (SI) is used.

Help on the day always appreciated.

Map Details

Terrain Description

Fast runnable, undulating parkland with scattered copses, lakes, streams and surrounding woodland. Not open to the public, but plenty of evidence of the land’s primary use – pheasant shooting and horse jumping. As a result, there are many temporary bird feeders and portable horse jumps scattered around the course. These are not mapped unless a control is placed on or besides them. There are also several small wooden portable horse stables/shelters on the course. These too have not been mapped.

Dog restrictions

Please keep under control and clear up any mess.
