Yvette Baker Team Results

Following a discussion between the Planner and Controller it was decided to omit Leg 5 and 6 on Brown in the interest of "fairness" as it affected several competitors. One person was affected on the Blue course and she has been "credited" with this control. The Planner and Controller wish to apologise for the error in the misplacing of No.158 and hope that it didn't detract from your overall enjoyment.

The terrain is mainly wooded with conifer and deciduous trees situated on a hill which runs the length of the area, with steep sections in places. The ridge of the hill runs west to east with the north side in Wales and the south side in England. The conifer areas are covered in brashings (small cut branches), which makes running difficult; the deciduous areas have varying degrees of undergrowth. The area has a number of forestry tracks and numerous paths some indistinct.

Runners need to be aware that the area is popular with other users, walkers with dogs, horse riders and mountain bikers so when crossing tracks or paths please take care.

This event will also incorporate the Welsh Regional Yvette Baker competition for juniors orienteers, teams from Welsh clubs and BOK will be represented.
