    This will be a retro street orienteering event and SI timing will only be used to record start / finish time. There will be no controls or markers out. The competitor's job will be to navigate round the course finding the answers to a series of questions. The answers will be found at the centre of each control circle ‐ navigate there and you will find the answers. We will provide the map and question sheet ‐ you need to provide the writing implement ....... or have an extremely good memory!!!

    The start and finish will be located by the bandstand in Dock Park. Click here to see the location.

    There will be 3 courses on offer
    Short 1.2k ‐ all in Dock Park. Suitable for juniors and families.
    Medium 2.5k ‐ this course is largely off roads but does cross the pedestrian bridge into Troqueer Park (and returns by same route). This course for accompanied or older juniors.
    Long 4km (straight line distance so expect to run further!) ‐ suitable for adults and juniors 16+
