Please note due the lack of mobile reception at the venue you will need to download the event, map and course on to your app before leaving home and leave it on. It is important not to exit the app as this will lose the information for it to work. The app only needs a satellite signal when running your course. As already instructed in our guidance notes you will need to select settings on your mobile phone and under display and brightness – sleep the option never.
The event will be uploaded onto the Usynligo website on Saturday afternoon.
In order to publish results could you please send your individual results to Terry Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org on your return home. This can be done by selection the event and course you have completed and on the top right corner of the screen click on the the 3 lines and then on to the 3 dots which are in a triangular shape and then click on the email account. This will produce a XML file which I can then download on to the website.
Blaenmelindwr is the location but we will be using the area called Banc Trawsnant, which is just south of the Llyn Blaenmelindwr. The area is mainly open hill with many contour details and small crags.
