• Stars/Loops

    Star and Loop courses are where the group leader chooses a central base, and sends the students out to collect a single control, or pair of controls, and then return to base. They are particularly suitable for very young beginners.

    Light Green is the easier end of difficult courses – controls may be on small features and contour shapes away from paths, but there will be a catching feature to stop you going too far if you miss it. Lengths are typically 2-4km.

  • #80eda0
  • White

    White is the easiest level of course, suitable for young beginners. Controls are fairly close together, and usually at path junctions, or junctions of paths and streams or walls; distance is typically 1-1.5km; the best route should be obvious, along paths, and require very few decisions.
