Event description

Description

Purpose

To spend the day in a mountainous environment, looking at navigational features and relate them to the map.

Description

We will meet at Cregennan Lakes Car Park - toilets avaiable here.

The day will be spent 'on the hill'. Initially we will look at handrails and contour features, relating them to a map. During the afternoon, we will move on to steeper and more remote ground and look at compass bearings and pacing as a way of moving from one known point to other features.

What level is this?

You should be confident with being outdoors for 6-8 hrs. You should be confident that you can spend a day in the mountains and are prepared for any weather. We will not be covering a huge amount of ground, but as an indication it will be a maximum of 15km.

Required equipment

  • Clothing for a full day on the hills – this should be warm, and be full waterproof body cover
  • Footwear suitable for a mountain environment
  • Food that will keep you fuelled for the day
  • At least 500ml of water

What we will provide

Included in the course cost is a Harveys Map (RRP £15.95) - this is for you to take away afterwards. Harveys produce many of the UK's running event maps, so being familiar with 1:40000 is beneficial.

We provide the loan of quality Silva Ranger compasses for the day

Katie and Ash are both qualified mountain leaders – we provide fully insured mountain guiding.


Start: 09:00 Cregennan Lakes Car Park 15th April 2018
Cost: £45 for the day
Max number: 12

Please note although we love dogs, we cannot allow dogs with participants on this day.
