YHOA Urban Event

Final Details

 

Assembly: Golcar Scout and Community Centre, Manor Road, Golcar, HD7 4QE Streetmap.co.uk - Map of HD7 4QE, What3words – mobile.noses.translated

Covid-19: The event will be organised in accordance with British Orienteering and Government Guidance in effect at the time of the event.

IF YOU HAVE ANY COVID SYMPTONS PLEASE STAY AT HOME – STAY SAFE.

Parking: There are no public car parks available, so competitors should park considerately on nearby estate roads. (Manor Road HD7 4AL, Church Street HD7 4PX, Banks Road HD7 4LX, avoiding driveways.)

Assembly, Toilets and Download: Please follow relevant Covid guidelines in place at the time of the event in relation to wearing masks in buildings etc. Toilets will be available in the Community Centre – hand sanitiser provided. Only enter the building to use the toilets and download after your run. Please do not mingle indoors – if you want to wait for family or friends there is a covered outdoor area at the back of the centre.

Terrain: Urban terrain, mostly on pavements, around residential areas.

The original name for Golcar was "Guthlac's Scar" where Guthlac preached to the masses on the hillside.  The oldest part of the village (Victorian or older) is on the steep south facing hillside. Most of the residents were weavers working at home.  Here are many cobbled lanes and ginnels which can be slippery when wet. All courses except F and G visit this area. Course F only crosses estate roads. Course G only crosses one road, a quiet cul de sac.  The adult courses cross the one Broad which divides the older part of Golcar from the newer.  All the roads on the area of the map are in a 30mph limit.
