Additional information from the organiser

Peter Ross (mapper, planner, organiser etc) has sent the following info and comments -

Jillyan and I have done quite a lot of new mapping so that the pub sits in the middle of the competition area which includes parts of Timperley, Sale, Brooklands and an area north of Wythenshawe Park.

The map is 1:12,500 and fills most of the page, which is another way of saying that the area is extensive enough to give the 18km runners a good night out whichever direction they choose to go. Other more cerebral orienteers may enjoy some of the patches of intricate navigation, and yet others may enjoy solving some awkward problems of route choice. I hope so.

The pub has an extensive menu and the beer is pretty good too. The landlord and his assistants are all very friendly, and they will be able to cope with our numbers quite comfortably. There is no need to book food in advance.

Brooklands Metro station is only half a mile to the west of the pub along the Marsland Road, but for those coming by car there is parking behind the pub - accessed from Cromer Road. It is not huge, but parking on the nearby streets will not be difficult.

Reserving a map

Maps will be printed on Sunday 4th December, so please let Grahame have your entries by midnight on Saturday 3rd December - email
