It�s a race with no set route - you have to find your way around the course as fast as you can, using a special orienteering map of the woods to find a series of checkpoints. Each checkpoint might be on paths, or hidden behind vegetation, ditches or streams. Each one consists of a marker flag and timing unit, for you to register your electronic timing chip against (which we will lend to you). Be as competitive as you want - run, jog or just walk, there will be a 5k course for runners, plus shorter ones for families and juniors (1k to 3k), although you can enter any course you wish.

Just turn up and enter on the day, any time between 10:00 and 11:30. Courses close at 1pm and normally take 30 to 75 mins to complete. Entry fees are just �£6 for adults and groups; �£2 for solo juniors (and you get to keep your waterproof map as a souvenir!).

Organised by Thames Valley Orienteering Club and supported by Wycombe District Council. Parking at Kings Wood School, Hollis Road, High Wycombe, HP13 7UN. The race registration tents will be by the car park - just turn up, lots of help will be available for newcomers.
