Make sure you know what Out of Bounds and uncrossable i.e. “forbidden to cross” walls/fences look like on these ISSOM maps – PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THIS GUIDE. Uncrossable means forbidden to cross as we don’t have permission for you to do so. If in doubt and the wall/fence/piece of land you’re about to cross looks private then show some respect and don’t do it!
By popular request, here’s a guide to the control descriptions courtesy of the Irish Orienteering Association. Column D shows you what you’re looking for (in urban racing, there’ll be a lot of tree, hedge, fence, steps, building, wall, manmade feature) and column G shows you where the flag is on the feature (especially useful when working out which side of an uncrossable fence you need to be for example.)
