Level of event: Local (D)
Nearest town: Tal-y-bont


Full splits


The area is a wooded hillside, with a variety of conifer and broadleaf woodland. Longer courses will use the farmland to the west of the forest offering spectacular views across Borth bog and north to the Dyfi Estuary. The ride and path network, means the shorter courses are especially suitable for beginners and children. Courses have been designed to avoid the worst of the brambles but some will still be encountered on the more technical courses!

Map & Control Descriptions 1:10,000 with 5m contours. Maps will be A4, printed on waterproof paper. Control descriptions will be printed on the maps and there will be loose ones at registration.

General Course Information

Please ask if you would like any help choosing which course to do. It is best to choose      an easier course to start with if you are new to orienteering. The distance is the straight line between controls on the map but the actual distance you cover will be longer depending on your route choices. 

Yellow Courses use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams with the controls visible from the linear feature. They are suitable for newcomers, under 12’s and family groups.

Orange Courses progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. There are line features to follow including paths, walls, fences and streams but with the option to cut corners. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.

Light Green Courses are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and ‘point’ features away from linear features. Learning how to use contours, compass, distance estimation and route choice. Planned with a ‘collecting linear feature’ beyond the control to help you if you overshoot and go too far. 

Blue Courses are a longer, more physically and technically demanding course using interpretation of contours, recognition of indistinct features, concentration over long distance.
