Ickworth Park (South)

Join us for this orienteering event which will enable you to explore the southern section of the beautiful Ickworth Park. Plan your route & find the checkpoints, across open parkland & through woodland, on one of our various courses. Newcomers are welcome - just chat to the volunteers at the "Help tent" & they'll talk you through the basics & offer advice on choosing the most suitable course for you (or your group).

Ickworth Park (South)

Ickworth Park is ideal for orienteering as it offers a variety of different types of terrain with a good path network & many clearly recognisable features, enabling less experienced orienteers to be fairly confident of their location at any time. You will be able to choose from 8 different courses, from just under 2Km with easy navigation, mainly on paths, up to nearly 10Km (with inclines!). The actual distance you travel will depend on your route planning - & the most efficient routes on the longer courses will take you off the beaten track!

You can choose to run to compete with the best - or with a group of friends - or explore the estate at a more leisurely pace. If the latter, you'll just need to plan your start time so that you can be finished by 14:30, when the courses close.

Entry is online or on-the-day, with fees set at £12.00 per adult or group (with a £2.00 discount for British Orienteering members & a further £2 discount for online entry, including non-members, until 26th February) & £4.00 for those under 21yrs. Electronic timing (SI) will be used & the timing cards can be hired (£1).
