Climb is relatively little on all courses and there are practically no contours on the map.
Medium and Long course venture into the residential area of Shankill east of the main street. Technically Street Orienteering is usually simpler compared to forest or mountain orienteering. The main challenge is route choice as often a striaght line route may not be possible. Also if you move quickly then keeping up with navigation can be challenging.
Maps A4 waterproof, Long course printed both sides.
Control descriptions are on map, though only on one side of the long course.
Loose descriptions are available for Medium and Long course.
Short course map has a Legend, Medium and Long don't
A limited supply of loose Legends (waterproof) will be available for Medium and Long Course competitors who feel they need them.
