Checker Comments

The checker, Mike Greenwood, would like to apologise to anyone who lost time at Control 71 due to the incorrect clue ...

My original notes clearly state “H 75 over 'blank'”; Not “H on TP”.

Clearly there was a transcription error at some point which I missed.

Hence answers for either the planned H, or the H on LP11643 (which was on other side of the path) have been accepted.”

Wrong Answers:

Control 48: LP 1 (correct) – LP 9 (incorrect – clearly South of bend and Junction) see snip

Control 71: Clue was incorrect

Clue should have been “H (low)” _ _ / blank – with answer 75 / blank

There is no H on TP; however there is an H on LP11643 – which is just across the path.

The H on LP11643 is 5 over 4 – therefore either answer is acceptable.
I have photographs on my camera if anyone is interested.

Control 77

Once Again – clue wrong (not just _ )

Answer was TP: CP 01 [In our defence the numbers did look very new, so may have been redone since the last visit by either Tom or I!] I did my first checks on 26th Dec 2021.

Pre Event Info

Score event with 40 minute, 60 minute or 75 minute time limit. Under 16s MUST be accompanied by an adult. 16 and 17 year olds can compete alone but ONLY with written consent from parent/guardian. Lights essential (+ back-up). High-visibility clothing compulsory.

Venue: The Railway Inn, 4 Biddulph Road, Congleton, CW12 3JS

The event is a conventional "write down your answers on the clue sheet" event - it will NOT use MapRun on your phone or watch.

Start and Finish will be timed using SI as usual.


Everyone should pre-enter using the MDOC Registration System Select your course, then choose a start block. If you do not have your own SI card (dibber), a hire dibber will be allocated to you. This process will guarantee that a map is available for you on the night. 

If you wish to run in a pair, please enter each competitor individually, and we'll sort the pairings out at registration on the night.

Entries will close at midnight on Sunday 6th February.

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 question / answer sheet and a dibber (if requested) and pay for your entry. Our preferred system of payment is by contactless card - using the iZettle 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); people running in pairs will both be charged.

We will operate a 'gopher' system for anyone who feels uncomfortable with going into the pub. Please pre-enter in the usual way, then drop Grahame an email to let him know. You will either have to pay by cash - preferably the exact money, or temporarily hand your credit / debit card to the gopher who will make the payment on your behalf before returning the card to you.

Other points worth noting .........

The data you provide in the pre-entry system removes the requirement to fill in the "Participant Waiver Form".

The boards showing photographs of common control sites will no longer be used. The photos are available on the Typical NSL Controls page.

Final details - including a copy of the Safety Notice, and the safety map - will be emailed to all pre-entries after entries have closed.

It will not be available at registration. Please read them!

Food arrangements

The pub have asked us to give them an idea of the number of people who would like to eat after their run, and an indication of their choice of food from the menu. If you plan to eat at the pub, please reply to Grahame indicating your choice. Closing time for responses will be midnight on Sunday 6th Feb.
