Minor Bush / Training event - Seaham
Something a little different for a bush event – the courses have been designed to have a stronger emphasis on navigation, with compact course layouts, pivot controls and multiple controls within a small area. Thus, we have been able to avoid much of the steeper, less runnable areas of this map (sigh of relief). However, the close spacing of controls and high level of map detail will make quick thinking a necessity.
As a bonus, Hard entrants have the chance to be the first ever participants in “Yard-O”, a totally new form of orienteering in which the backyard becomes the ultimate challenge! Think sprint map meets bush map, meets mad landholder… A must for anyone who has ever wondered if orienteering could ever become a backyard sport.
