PARKING  £1.00 for cars £2.00 for minibuses - please have exact money ready. Exit from the car park will be through the same gate that you entered the field. Please be careful when joining the minor road. Sunday afternoons can be fairly busy in this area of the Lake District. DOGS Are allowed in the car parking field if on the lead. No dogs allowed on the courses. TERRAIN Mainly fast, runnable open moorland. There are areas of bracken, that have spread in some places since the map was produced, but course planning has attempted to avoid the worst of it. Some new ATV tracks have appeared since the map was produced and are not mapped. With the recent rain marshes that were fairly dry in July are likely to be much wetter now. FOR YOUNG COMPETITORS; The path from the final controls to the Finish for the junior courses is, in some places, steep, rough and slippery. Please take great care when descending this path. MAPS Will be printed on waterproof paper. Maps will not be bagged, but competitors may wish to bring their own bags, to avoid the possibility of ‘staining’ if conditions are wet and muddy. CONTROL DESCRIPTIONS  These will be printed on course maps. (On the back of the map for Short Brown & Blue)  They will be pictorial for all courses except for White, Yellow and Orange , which will have written control descriptions  There will be loose copies available in the assembly field, as well as being available on the BL website ( after Wednesday 2nd September. CONTROLS.  Control flags will be hung from bamboo canes, the SI box being mounted on a plastic board laid on the ground. The control number is displayed on the board. A sample control will be displayed at Enquiries.  The SI boxes are programmed to 'wake up' automatically when visited by the 1st runner, who may have to leave his SI card in place for an extra second or two before the box beeps and flashes. Manual pin punches will be hung from the flag; should a box fail to respond, please use the pin punch to punch your map and report the problem to download as soon as possible after you finish.
