The historic medieval City of Norwich has boundaries of the river Wensum on the east side, with parts of the old city wall visible in the south, west, and north. This is the area the competition map depicts, with the Castle on higher ground and Cathedral on lower ground, near the river. The city is laced with small passageways and many areas are pedestrianised.
The courses are planned to avoid traffic as much as possible, but competitors do have to cross roads between pedestrian areas. For this reason, under BOF rules, juniors who are still under 16 years old on 31st October can only enter courses 6 or 7, which have marshalled road crossings. These courses use the same terrain as the senior courses passing through the city centre and old parts of Norwich.
Newcomers are recommended to do Course 7 which is suitable for novice adults with limited or no orienteering experience, and for families or small groups. It is also suitable for pushchairs and wheelchair users; we advise that anyone in a wheelchair has a suitably able person with them due to one of the roads having small cobbles making it uneven though passable. Course 6 is suitable for groups and individuals with more orienteering experience.

To Be Confirmed
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.
