- NSL4 Romiley Final Details - please read!
Beware of busy roads - some of which have marked crossings you may wish to use - and especially 3 busy junctions which are indicated on the map.
Also note that the terrain could be described as undulating, with a significant hill in the NE corner of the map. There are a lot of TPs.
The mapped area has been extended slightly, and is being used differently to previous events. Control values go up to 80s and 90s, with late penalties set at the fairly proportionate rate of 1 point every second (or 60 points per minute).
The event will be a MapRun event, enabling use of the MapRun6 app on your phone or the MapRunG app on to your watch.
If you are new to the system, please read the instructions on our website
and download the MapRun apps to your phone or watch. The event files will be available a few days before the event. You are strongly advised to download everything you need before you arrive at the event.
As usual, you can use paper or MapRun or both to claim your points.
There is a trivial MapRun demo if you want to check your technology before the main event.
Start and Finish will be timed using SI as usual.
We need people to pre-order food (by Monday afternoon 5 Dec) - the pub is offering chicken curry, beef chilli or veg curry, all served with chips and rice for £9.95. Orders to Grahame asap please.
Pre-registration and entry
To enter the event, everyone should pre-register using the MDOC Registration System https://mdocentry.org.uk. Choose a start block, and hire a dibber if required. This process will guarantee that a map is available for you on the night.
If you are running as a pair, you both need to pre-enter the event.
Entries will close at midnight on Tuesday 6th December.
We would prefer to avoid entry on the day (EOD) but a limited number of maps may be available. Please do NOT rely on it.
On the night registration will be based in the pub. You will need to pick up your personalised clue sheet and a dibber (if requested) and pay for your entry. Our preferred system of payment is by contactless card - using the Zettle system. Cash payments will be possible, but not encouraged.
Please note that all runners will receive a map, and will be charged for it (£4 senior, £2 junior); additional maps (for people running in pairs) will be charged at £2.
- you don't have to use MapRun - you can just fill in the answers on your cluesheet,
- in the (unlikely ?) event of a missing "beep" at a control, MapRunners MUST record a written response on their clue sheet.
- you get points if you get a beep or if you write the answer down. Simples.
- photos of typical control sites can be seen on the Typical NSL Controls webpage,
- final details - including a copy of the Safety Notice, and the safety map will be emailed to all pre-entries after entries have closed - they will not be available at registration.
