Chilterns Day Night Orienteering Festival @ Chilterns Day Night Orienteering Festival
Dec 2 @ 5:00 pm – Dec 3 @ 2:00 pm

Chilterns “Night and Day” is a two-day orienteering festival, featuring an evening race in the dark on Saturday 2nd December and a day race on Sunday 3rd December. They’re separate events so feel free to come to both or either. The night race (also the Southern Night Championships) is not recommended for newcomers though! But if you’re a newcomer or improver, the Sunday races will be ideal and we’ll have a range of colour coded courses available. The Sunday event is a regional event and part of the South Central League too. Pre-entries for both events are open via the “Tickets” link on this page – more details below.

Terrain:
Penn Wood is one of the largest ancient woodlands in the Chilterns. Common Wood is semi-natural ancient woodland. Penn Wood is generally flat whilst Common Wood is gently sloping. Both woods are very varied with a mixture of conifer, beech and oak, and some open areas. There are many pits/depressions as a result of ancient clay and flint workings.

Parking/registration:
Penn Street village, just off the A404 between High Wycombe and Amersham. Penn Street is signposted at SU924965, HP7 0QW. Parking At commercial premises at SU923956, adjacent to the Hit or Miss pub, Penn Street, HP7 0PX. Parking is limited, so please share transport.

Map:
Shorter courses will run in Penn Wood only using a 1:7500 map. Longer courses will include the adjacent Common Wood and use a 1:10,000 map. Both will be of A3 size.

Closing date Sunday 26th November. For the Sunday SCOA League event only, late entry after that date and on the day will also be available, subject to map availability.

Fees:
Southern Nights – Seniors £12* (£14 non BOF), Juniors £5*.
Sunday pre-entry – Seniors £10* (£12 non BOF), Juniors £4*.
Late entry and on the day – Seniors £12 (£14 non BOF), Juniors £5.
Seniors on White, Yellow, Orange courses – £6 pre-entry and on day.
Emit card hire £1.50 per card per day. Lost cards charged at £45.
* Pre-enter for both events for £20 (Senior BOF) or £8 (Juniors).
Dogs Southern Nights – Dogs in car park only and must be on lead at all times.
Sunday – Well behaved dogs permitted in woods and in car park on lead.

Facilities: First Aid, squash, toilets. Tom’s burger van, Ultrasport (orienteering and running kit trader).

To be eligible for the Southern Night Championships, you must be a member of British Orienteering and have SCOA, SEOA or SWOA as your nominated Association on your 2017 British Orienteering membership; enter an appropriate AGE CLASS – either your own age class or be ‘running up’. Note that British Orienteering Rules permit Women to be competitive in Men’s classes, but not vice versa.
Courses All age classes from M/W16 through to M/W75. Long Orange course also available for novice Night orienteers. Note – This event is not recommended for complete beginners to orienteering. The organiser reserves the right to refuse entry to any competitor who is M/W14 or below. Any such entrants may be asked to provide evidence of competence on TD5 courses and in night orienteering. If you are in any doubt of your competence, please enquire on this page. A backup lamp and whistle are compulsory and will be checked. Depending on conditions, you may be required to carry a hooded waterproof jacket. Carrying a mobile phone is strongly recommended.
Starts From 5pm to 7pm. Start and Finish are 300m from car park.
