Very Easy Courses are very easy with all controls on paths; they are mainly used by six to ten year olds and family groups.
Easy Courses use paths, tracks, walls and streams to assist with navigation; they are mainly used by under 12's and families.
Medium Courses require the basic use of a compass and will have basic route choices; they are ideal for adult beginners.
Hard Courses are more technically difficult and use contour and 'point' features such as ponds, small buildings and ruins, small hills, boulders, re-entrants and depressions; they are used by people with some orienteering experience.
Very Hard Courses are physically demanding and technically more difficult and require significant route choices to be made; they are designed for experienced orienteers wanting a challenge and many legs on a course will offer route choices.
Course Technical Difficulty and Length (Km) are a guide to the standard of the courses offered.
