A first aid kit will be available with the organiser at the "map issue" car. Club first aiders will be at the event.
Competitors take part at their own risk. Once you have started a course it is a rule that you don't leave the event without reporting that you have returned even if you retire.

A Competitor Safety Slip can be downloaded here and brought to registration if you wish to leave medical or emergency contact details. You may place it in a sealed envelope. The slip will be only accessible to the organiser or first aiders and will be destroyed after the event.

*If you cannot attend either on Wednesday or Saturday - or want to run one of the other courses - the 3 courses will remain open on MapRun until 31st December to complete in your own time on a self-printed map. A pdf file will be available from keith.willdig(at) after Saturday 26th.

Note that any runs other than on the Wednesday or Saturday mornings will not count towards the OD local league
