See Downloadable document below:- WOA and MWOC invite you to a great weekend of orienteering at Llynnoedd Teifi in the Elenydd wilderness in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains. Llynoedd Teifi is an open moorland area with a myriad of small hills, lakes and crags. The Veteran Home Internationals Individual(VHIs) race will be on Saturday followed by the VHI Relay race on Sunday. The Welsh Long Distance Championships will follow the VHIs on the Saturday and competitors are welcome to spectate the exciting action of the VHI relays on the Sunday followed by the opportunity of a 60 minute score event. The event is open to all - those not taking part in the VHIs or the Welsh Championships can enter by course colour. Terrain: A large scenic area of open moorland at an elevation of between 300m and 550m. It is mainly rough pasture interspersed with small lakes and areas of marsh. Whilst you will undoubtedly get your feet wet, most of the marsh is readily crossed. There are numerous rock features. Only the most significant of these– in the context of the area immediately around them– are mapped. There are few paths and these are often indistinct. The area is hilly but careful route can reduce the amount of climb. The individual day area will be different to the area used by the relay/score event. Assembly - In a large flat field close to Frongoch farmhouse. The views are good but the area is exposed. There is plenty of room for club tents.
