Registration and Start times
1800 > 1915hrs.

Punitive penalties for finishing late (5 points off per part minute, and 10 points off for every full minute over your time).
Five points to note.
1. Control 201 is a bridge not a postbox
2. Control 17 is the post office, with letters boxes on the wall of office as the control
3. Do not cross over dual carriageways on the road. Rather, cross at designated crossing points (always at the roundabouts, sometimes also bridges and underpasses at other points)
4. Note that there is an additional path between control 10 and 11
5. Note that there is an additional path that could shorten the journey between control 11 and 12
No cost to participants.
Sorry but on this occasion it has proven to be too difficult to provide a non-urban option for under 16s.
