Directions / Parking

Parking is free but can get very busy, especially at week-ends. Thicket Road car park is about 500m from the start/finish, but is close to the toilets and cafe. Train options include Crystal Palace station at 750m from the start and Penge West at about the same. Penge East is 1.3km away.


Control descriptions are printed on each map using only text descriptions with embellishments. The control code is the same as the number of the control on the App. We are not providing loose control descriptions. The start (triangle) and finish (two circles) are separate for this event.

As all controls sites are within the park, with some off paths, these may take slightly longer to register but if you are sure you are in the right place, you can use either HITMO or upload your GPS track, each with an appropriate adjusted tolerance, when you get home if necessary as per the Guidance Notes.

To make this more challenging I recommend not looking at the map until you start. This is practice for a real event which we should have again soon.
