Day 1 - Saturday 24th June - Trailquest / MTBO combo -This is a cycle orienteering event with a fixed time limit (2 hours or 3 hours). You can compete in pairs or as a solo and the aim is to navigate from control to control collecting as many points as possible, returning within the 3-hour time limit or penalty points are incurred. The first 9 controls however are to be taken in fixed order and times and positions will be published for the competition at this point. There will then follow 5 score controls using the MTBO map before a map exchange to the smaller scale Trailquest map for the remainder of the time limit.

Day 2 - Sunday 25th June - Long 'O' - This is a Long Distance Foot Orienteering event with 4 courses available of approx 8, 12, 17 and 23 kms, distances between controls are significantly greater than normal orienteering courses and there is often a larger element of route choice between the controls with less emphasis on fine navigation near the control site. You can compete in pairs or as a solo and the aim is to finish in the quickest time.
