Helpers: As at any orienteering event we will need many helpers to make the events run smoothly, performing such tasks as registration, parking, start, finish and download. SROC members who help at the SROC event (day 2) qualify for a 50% discount on entry fees as recognition of their contribution. To volunteer your services, and to get the discount code (needed when entering on-line), please contact the Organiser


Parking/Assembly Fields: Location SD257931. Nearest postcode LA21 8BU. Link to


We have no facilities for large motor homes and they will not be allowed into the parking area. The tracks in the forest are simply not wide enough. There are places to park in Torver village itself  if you can arrange a lift up the hill. (Large means wider than a standard van. e.g. VW California)



Catering provided by Green Canteen, O Nosh and NWJS

CompassPoint Orienteering Shop

Toilets in assembly area.

Dogs: Dogs are allowed in the parking and and assembly areas.  They are not allowed on the courses. 


Terrain: Day 2 terrain is typical complex open Lakeland fell.
