Notes:
This is an EMOA League Middle distance event with course lengths based on a nominal Black course of 7km. Middle distance course lengths will be shorter than at other Colour Coded events and courses have been planned to have many changes of direction. All courses at Orange and above have loops with a central common control numbered, for example, 3/10/13 or 8/11. Competitors must punch at each visit. Short Green, Green, Blue and Brown courses cross a busy road to visit controls in the Hemlockstone area via a timed-out crossing in both directions. Blue and Brown courses also cross another minor road. The area has contour detail in the wooded hilly parts, a park and playing fields.

Safety:
Safety bearing - (a) in the main area of Bramcote Hills Park - west or south and follow the roads to the Assembly area. (b) in The Hemlock Stone area - Southeast to Coventry Lane, then via the roads to the Assembly area.
Please wear shoes with dobs or a good tread as some of the wooded slopes are steep. A dangerous crag in the Hemlockstone area will be taped along the top with black & yellow tape. There are some streamers to follow on the White course along a path with leaf cover, where children might find it difficult to see the path.
Competitors take part at their own risk.
It is recommended that whistles are carried.
Once you have started a course it is a rule that you don't leave the event without reporting to a download official even if you retire.

The Competitor Safety Slip can be downloaded and brought to registration if you wish to leave medical or emergency contact details. You may place in a sealed envelope. The slip will be only accessible to the organiser or first aiders and will be destroyed after the event.
