Frequently asked questions


At the time of writing, Covid-19 is still active in the community. At present there are no plans to take special precautions but this may change. It is really important that all participants read and abide by the British Orienteering COVID-19 Code of Conduct before, during and after competing. 

What is the entry fee?

See the entries page for full details of age class and colour coded entry fees

How do I amend the class and other details of an existing entry? 

Please see the entries page for amendments and changes.

Will there be any entry on the day (EOD)? 

EOD will be available for colour coded courses. EOD for age classes will ONLY be available if there are unused start times and maps are available.

Can I cancel my entry and get a refund? 

See the cancellation policy on the entries page.

Can I use my SI card? 

Yes, all types of competition SI card (5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11 and SIAC) can be used. The controls will be enabled for SIAC use although the start and finish MUST be ‘punched’.

Is there a rest day? 

Yes, on Wednesday 10th August, there will be no 5 Days competition but there is an Urban Race in Penrith.

What are the start times each day?

There will be a 4 minute call up. Starts are 10.30am to 1.30pm with courses closing at 4pm except day 3 when the courses close at 3.30pm

Will there be a bus to each competition day? 

Unfortunately we are unable to provide a bus service to the individual race sites.

Will there be a crèche/kindergarten provided for children? 

No, however it is possible for parents to request split starts.

What courses will be provided for young children? 

There will be a string course provided each day for young children, using special maps. The course will be available between 10:00 and 15:00. There will be no charge.

Is there mobile phone reception?

Days 1, 2 & 5 are expected to have reasonable reception on all networks in the assembly field. On days 3 & 4 it is expected that EE will be the only network available.

Will there be traders at the event where I can buy equipment?

Yes, there will be a trader who supplies orienteering equipment; this will be an excellent opportunity to upgrade your o-kit.

Will dogs be allowed in assembly areas? 

The Lake District is sheep country; many of the landowners whose land we run and park on are dependent on sheep. No dogs in the competition areas. Well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome in car parks; owners are expected to clean up after them.


Many of the approach roads to some of the race sites are narrow and winding with dry stone walls on both sides. Although we expect most days to be suitable for motorhome parking; for days 3 & 4 we may require large Motorhomes to use hard standing at Haverthwaite crossroads and get a lift from this location with fellow competitors who pass this point.

Will start times be allocated for colour coded competitors?

No, start times will be open for colour coded competitors.
