Bryant’s Heath is a small area of actively managed heath and woodland with some contour features, a complex, changeable formal & informal path network and patches of impassable gorse thicket providing a variety of route choice over short distances. The area provides the opportunity for shorter courses that hopefully still have a good level of navigable difficulty – more of a ‘middle distance’ event, compared to the traditional ‘long distance’ (relatively speaking) of our usual colour coded events. For this reason the course offering is simpler but hopefully still provides something for all.
For the Club Championships:
Juniors run any course to suit (cannot swap between long / half (or vice versa) after registration), result by jury.
Seniors run long course, result via spreadsheet age adjusted.
Others can do whatever they fancy including swap between long / half (or vice versa) part way round in order to get max enjoyment / min pain (just advise download).
Although our club championships are taking place at this event, we welcome anyone who wants to have a run or walk with a bit of navigational challenge, but we would ask any groups to contact the organiser beforehand to ensure we have enough maps.

The event is being planned in line with British Orienteering guidelines relating to COVID-19 published on 21st July, 2021.
Before attending this event, or any other orienteering activity, orienteers, including officials, volunteers and coaches, should self-assess for symptoms of COVID-19. These are:
• A high temperature.
• A new, continuous cough.
• A loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste.
If you, or anyone you live with, have one or more of these symptoms you should not attend the event, even if your symptoms are mild. You should follow NHS guidance on testing and self-isolation.
If you have been informed that you need to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace (or are required to self-isolate in relation to travel), you must do so. You should not leave your isolation location in order to participate in sport and physical activity. You can find more information in the NHS guidance on how to self-isolate.
We welcome school / guide / scout groups etc. Please contact the organiser, at least a week in advance, so that we can ensure that we print enough maps.
Many people like to take photos at sporting events and we’re hoping that some of the pictures taken will be shared with us for our website or Facebook pages. We don’t ‘tag’ or give contact details on Facebook, and hope that anyone else sharing photos on social media will also take care, particularly when young people are involved. If competitors or parents/guardians would prefer that photographs of individuals are not taken or published, please notify the event officials.
