What is the ‘Cleveland Survival’?
The Survival is a friendly event based on an orienteering course of about 26 miles to be completed within the 12-hour time limit. There will be a series of checkpoints identified by a grid reference and description. Your aim is to visit each checkpoint in the order given on the route card.
Where is the ‘Cleveland Survival based this year?
The location of the event is notified to successful applicants by post at least 3 weeks in advance of the event. If requested a list of places offering overnight accommodation in the locality or a telephone number for Tourist Information Centre will be provided.
How to get an entry?
Send in the completed entry form with cheque payable to the ‘Cleveland Survival’. Address is on the top of the form. Details of start times and event number are also sent by post 3 weeks before the event. If you wish to have the same start time as a friend please write their name and any relevant information in the space provided overleaf.
The organizers will arrange car parking and some marshalling. Look out for the triangular SURVIVAL direction markers.
Start times are staggered at 2 minute intervals between 8 and 9 am. Sufficient time should be left to travel from the car park to the event centre to register and reach the start before your start time; an allowance of at least 1 hour is recommended.
A description card must be completed and submitted at registration. This is so we know what you look like if we have to come looking for you.
At registration you will be issued with a clip card, which must be punched at each of the checkpoints to avoid disqualification. Instructions given at the start and on the route card must be carefully followed to avoid disqualification. The checkpoints have closing times that will be enforced at the discretion of the organisers. In the event of Search and Rescue duties or serious adverse weather conditions the event route may be altered or abandoned in the interests of safety.
More on clip cards…..they are important!
Whether you finish the event, or if you have to drop out, the route card must be handed in at the finish. If the route card is not returned we will presume you are missing.
Food and drink on the route…
You need to take your own food and water. Additional water is provided at two of the checkpoints and hot and cold drinks will normally be available at the mid-way checkpoint. Please follow the country code and stay on rights of way unless other permissions have been explicitly given.
At the finish…
Hot food and drinks will be available at the finish. The presentation to winners of main prizes will normally take place at about 2.30 – 3.00 pm, spot prizes will be awarded to others upon their return.
