The Club is holding a short series of night orienteering events in terrain, and as we are aware that many won’t have tried this format, we are making the courses easy and the venues used are familiar and safe.

Parking Turn down High School Lane just south of Selkirk High School, and then turn right at bottom to the Argus Centre.

Terrain Selkirk Hill has a good network of paths. The street lights of Selkirk should always be visible to the west.

One course on offer at about Orange standard

starts 6 – 6.30pm.

Course Closure time will be  7.30pm

Entry fees £10 for Series, £4 per night.

Compared to day events, night events present a greater risk of exposure, Competitors are advised that they should carry additional protection – consider hat, warmer clothing or cagoule and a whistle. A compass is essential. Juniors under 16 may take part, but must be accompanied by an adult.

Head torches provide hands-free illumination but pleases check your batteries are good enough to last the evening and it’s advisable to carry a spare torch as backup.
