What does this mean?
Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Training events are non competitive and used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships. Virtual events are where there are no physical controls being used. Your presence at a control is registered using an App on your mobile phone, normally the free MapRun6 App.

Controls (checkpoints) are very easy to find, mostly on paths, ideal for younger children and complete beginners.
Controls are on or near paths with some route choice. Good for progressing juniors and adults who are reasonably confident reading a map.
Controls are away from paths giving more navigational challenge. Suitable for those with some experience.
As technically as hard as we can make it; for experienced orienteers.
21 controls. Visit as many controls as you can in an hour in any order. 7 easy controls numbered in the 60's, 7 moderate difficulty numbered in the 70's and 7 more difficult numbered in the 80's
