Equipment In Use - At most STAG EVENTS we use Sportident Timing Equipment & from October 2019 the SI Timing Programme. Electronic Timing Fingers can be borrowed for each event but shall be charged at cost if lost or damaged. Mini-Orienteering Flags tend to be used & to safeguard our kit the Units are likely to be padlocked to a secure location. When checking in at each control hold the Electronic Box in your free hand, pull so that the cable goes tight & so that your SI Finger can fit into the open socket on the box. Code Numbers are shown in Large Print on the top of each Electronic Box. SI Air + is enabled at most of these events.

Your Personal Kit - Competitors must have full body cover & remember we are entering the Winter so a light waterproof will also be useful. You shall require to have a LIGHT source be that a hand-held torch or headlight. A spare light is also advised.
Competitors take part at their own risk & are responsible for their own safety at all times.

Splits Print Out - A splits print out of your times per leg & the overall time shall be presented when you download.
