Bradenham final details

Loose control descriptions will NOT be available in the start lanes.  Descriptions will be on the map.  If you want loose descriptions, then please download them and print.


The event will be held in a COVID-secure manner in accordance with British Orienteering’s operational guidance. It is really important that all participants read and abide by the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before, during and after competing.  It has been updated so please click the link above to read the latest version.  Note also that ‘spectators’ are not permitted to attend (with the exception of carers for people with disabilities, or adults needed to supervise under-18s in a safeguarding role).  So you will not be able to bring a non-competing husband / wife / partner with you.

This event is pre-entry only, and is restricted to British Orienteering members only.

This event will be SIAC-enabled.
