LOG Summer & Winter Series 

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do I need to be a member of the club to take part?
    No, anyone is free to come along and join in.

2. Do I need any previous experience to run a course?
    Not at all, we have 3 courses on offer: Short for beginners or the long course is ideal for runners
    wanting a longer run without too much navigation. A technical course for experienced orienteers.

3. Can I bring along the family?
    Yes please do, more the merrier!

4. Even the dog?
    Even the dog is welcome however in some areas you may have to keep them on a lead.

5. What do I need to bring along with me?
    Suitable clothing for a walk (or run) around woods and parkland. We try and avoid areas that are
    too rough or muddy, but we can't control the weather on the day sadly. If you are thinking of doing
    a harder course a compass will be a big help.

6. How much is this going to cost me?
    Entry fee is 2.00 per map and includes SI dibber hire.

7. What do I get for this?
    At most events you get a pre marked & bagged map although not at all of them, some you will have to
    mark you own map (pens supplied) All of our events use Sport Ident electronic punching, hire of an SI dibber is included in the entry fee.

8. Some of the events are quite a distance apart, can I get a lift?
    We try to car share as much as possible. If you join our Yahoo Group you can discuss events &
    arrange lifts with other members. We have just started a database for lift arrangements, Click HERE for   
    more details, you may need to join the Yahoo Group to view the database, this is a free service.

9. Do you meet after the event?
    We always meet in a local pub after the event, you can discuss you run, find out where you made
    mistakes and find out from others which routes they took. This is a great way to meet the group &
    learn from more experienced orienteers.

10. Where can I get more information?
