British Orienteering requires that all competitors wear clothing that fully covers the torso and legs. There may also be a requirement to carry a hooded waterproof top. If required, there will be notices.


Due to a Netflix film set, PreO has had to be moved to a new location, a short (4km, max 15 mins) drive or a long 2km walk from Assembly.


Dogs are permitted in the Assembly/Car Park field but not on the courses. We ask that if you bring your dog that you keep it on a lead in the Assembly area and clear up after them.
