AJAX is delighted to be hosting a Come and Try It event in Marlay Park on the 9th August! We look forward to seeing you all there.

Event Directions and Parking: Parking is available at the car park just off College Road on the south side of the park. An orienteering kite will be placed at the car park entrance. Registration, start, finish and download will all be based near this car park.

Registration and Entry Fees: Registration will be in the car park just off College Road. If you are new to orienteering, please let the organisers know and they will show you what to do. Please get in touch beforehand if you are bringing a large group so we can arrange maps and especially if you are bringing a bus.

Map: Maps are printed at a scale of 1:5,000 for all courses on A4 paper. Contour interval is 5 meters. There will be no loose control descriptions at the event. Either use the descriptions that are printed on the front of your map, or download them from the link below and print them yourself.

Unfortunately, we cannot provide refreshments but there are cafes and market stalls in the park.

Timing: SportIdent (SI) timing will be used. You must download your SI card after orienteering, whether you complete the course or not. Otherwise, we will not know if you have finished.

Course Details:
Long – 6.4 k, 17 controls
Medium – 3.7 k, 16 controls
Short – 2.2 k, 10 controls

Please bring all of your rubbish home with you – don’t leave it to the organisers to dispose of full rubbish bags. Thanks to DLRCC for granting permission to use the park.
