Other Information
Safety – A risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser for each event, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event.

Health – Full leg (trousers) and torso (t-shirt) cover is required to help avoid ticks. Due to the nature of orienteering going through undergrowth, picking up ticks is more likely than during walks/runs along well used paths.

Public Liability – Please be aware that British Orienteering Federation (BOF) event insurance only covers non-member participants for public liability for 3 events in any one year (this includes helpers, parents shadowing and competitors). Why not become a member? Also, you will be asked to provide contact details for insurance purposes

Privacy – when entering our events your name may appear in the results section of this website or in newspaper reports. Grampian Orienteers’ data privacy policy.

Photography – In line with the policies of British Orienteering, the organisers of this event request that any person wishing to take photos or video showing children should register their details with event volunteers before taking any such photos or videos. The event organisers reserve the right to ask people to refrain from taking photos or video and may, if such warnings are ignored, refer the matter to the police.

…and then on to the Urban Series: 6 Wed evening events starting 31 Aug 2016.
