Routegadet GPS Notes

If you did both parts, you will need to split your gps track into two at the map exchange (53.3007, -2.2340). This will also allow you to get an accurate split time. The second part will need to dragged into position.

Lost and Found

A pair of Hoka trainers was spotted on the kerb of Beaufort drive which was used for parking at the event. It looks like they were accidentally left by one of the runners.

If they are yours and you'd like them back, contact Dave McCann. After a few weeks they will be binned as unfortunately they don't fit me.

Final Details

Kate and Dave (mappers and planners) have​ provided the following information:

We are expecting a larger than usual entry this week and the registration area will be very busy.

In view of this we are taking this opportunity to give you some additional advance information about safety, the event and, in particular, car parking arrangements.

Car Parking

'Wilmslow Running Club' have made their own arrangements and will be parking at the Festival Hall.

To minimise traffic congestion, everyone else has been allocated to parking in one of 2 areas (see below) which are 1 mile apart by road but very close to the pub - see diagram on right hand side (click to enlarge).

Please use the post codes to navigate to your assigned area.

  1. Pre-registered surnames beginning A-G will use the pub car park (SK9 7LD) (only 20 spaces reserved for orienteering) and when this is full you will be directed to Moss Road (SK9 7JA).
  2. Everyone else, including competitors who have not pre-registered, MUST park in Beaufort Close (SK9 7HU) / Devonshire Drive (SK9 7HT). 
    There will be an O-kite hanging at the back gate to the Drum and Monkey in Beaufort Close.

Please make sure you do not block residents' access to their properties.
Please drive carefully as runners will be using both of these areas to leave and return to the pub.

Registration will be upstairs in the pub.

Pre-ordered Food will be served downstairs between 19:30 and 21:00 in exchange for a cloakroom ticket purchased at registration. There is a food menu available at the pub but they will be hard-pressed to provide hot food for everyone who hasn't pre-ordered. 

Hazards There will be large scale hazard maps on display in the registration area. Pay attention to

  • Busy roads in the centre of the village and note the location of the 4 light-controlled crossing points.
  • Main roads with no footpath on one side.
  • Railway crossing points. The station platforms and foot bridge are OOB.
  • Unlit paths and in particular, low overhanging trees on one path which are shown on the map and will be marked with fluorescent tapes.
  • Cobbled roads, often steep, which will be slippery in wet weather.

Event Details

  • The map is 1:10000.
  • The course is divided into 2 parts with a 60:40 split in distance, controls and the points available on each part.
  • There are 60 controls with point values of 10 to 60 distributed pro-rata.
  • There are separate maps for each part but the clue sheets for part 1 and 2 are printed back-to-back on a single sheet.
  • There is no obligation to visit the map exchange but if you do you must exchange your part 1 map for a part 2 map.
  • The location of the start/finish and the map exchange are shown on both maps and on the hazard map at registration.
  • There will be a penalty of 1 point per 2 seconds (30 points per minute) if you are late back at the finish.

Map Exchange

  • We are indebted to Alderley Edge Methodist Church for permission to use their grounds for the Map Exchange.
  • There are 2 other activities using the church at the same time as our event. This will mean vehicles and pedestrians entering and leaving the church premises at certain times
  • They will have been warned of our presence and to take care.
  • We too should show mutual respect to them.

Emergencies

  • If you have an accident, please inform the Event Organiser.
  • The Emergency Number is shown on the Map and on the Clue Sheet.
  • The nearest A & E Department is in Macclesfield.  Post Code SK10 3BL.
