Etiquette: Please show respect for other visitors to Leith Hill. One disapproving letter to the park authorities is all it takes. Please give way to walkers, cyclists, horseriders and be careful with your antenna. We are very fortunate to be able to use Leith Hill and do not want to cause problems for the local radio and orienteering clubs who have longstanding access agreements.

Prize giving: Certificates will be presented at an awarding ceremony after the 2m race on Day 2. Provisional time Saturday 1400 hrs. Certificates for each age group.

Facilities: None. Public toilets at Newlands Corner GU4 8SE and South Street, Dorking
