Safety: Whilst a full Risk assessment will be carried out competitors will be responsible for their own safety.
Competitors take part at their own risk. Waterproof jackets may be compulsory in the case of bad weather and if this proves to be the case a notice to this effect will be displayed in the car park.  Whistles are advisable.  Head torches and full leg cover are compulsory and will be checked. 
Make sure you have someone who will raise the alarm if you appear to be very late finishing. 
Lone competitors must leave their car keys at registration and record their name, phone no. and registration number on the entry form.
ln the unlikely event of cancellation, details will be posted on the EPOC website.


Planners Notes: There are a number of vague deer tracks in the woodland that are not mapped.
The fences surrounding the woodland, the newly planted steep valley and those crossing the moorland are all robust and can all be crossed at any point. We would suggest you do this next to a post. Any existing gate or stile which provides an easier crossing point and a number of additional ones with sacking over barbed wire are marked on the purple overprint. These are not mandatory crossing points.
The Ovenden Moor Windfarm is currently being redeveloped and has now been omitted from the map. Please do not stray into any of the construction area.
The shooting butts on the moor are not mapped.


Control Descriptions:  Description sheets will be printed on the map and available loose in the start lanes.
