On behalf of British Orienteering and the South West Orienteering Association, the Clubs in the South West welcome you to the 2018 British Middle Distance Championships being held in Stockhill Woods, south of Bath
The event is a Middle distance race in intricate woodland in an old mining area. We have an excellent Assembly field, right next to the competion area with the access to the Start about 300m away.
The map has been completely updated by Dave Peel and the run in for all courses can be easily viewed from the Assembly area with space for Club tents all along one side of the run-in. There will be two catering outlets and Ultrasport will be attending. Andy Munro and his team will be providing the usual commentary. The event will use SportIdent controls with contactless dibbing enabled for speedy racing. SI or SIAC dibbers may be used - SI & SIAC dibbers are available for hire with pre entries but only SI dibbers will be available for hire on the day.
Key information for planning your weekend is:
There is a wide range of accommodation available in Bath and the surrounding area and there are also many things to do before or after your orienteering. Further details are on Bath's Official Tourism Site.
The previous day the British Sprint Championships will be held at Bath University.
Entries are now open at SiEntries. Entry fees will rise after Sunday 15th July and will close on Sunday 12th August 2018.
