The event will use digital SPORTident timing; known as SI. At registration each competitor will be issued with their own SI Dibber, which must be ‘punched’ into the SI timing boxes at each checkpoint, the start and the finish. For those unfamiliar with this simple and reliable system, see below and please don’t hesitate to ask for instructions at registration.
- You will know if your dibber has registered at any SI box as it will beep and flash by way of feedback. If you are in any doubt that you have successfully ‘dibbed’ a box, please take a note of the three letter code on the box and keep this safe until you download incase required.
The SI system is an important safety feature of the event and when competitors ‘download’ their SI data at the end of each day, we will be able to ascertain who is safely off the hill.
All controls (may also be referred to as ‘checkpoints’) will be marked with a white and orange orienteering kite as shown in the picture above.
