Non League Event – Dhekelia Station – Mon 10 Feb 14
 
 
Date: Monday 10 February 2014
 
Location: Registration will take place at the Lions Gym Dhekelia Station.
 
Travel: From Akrotiri travel East to Larnaca (A1/A5/A3) and come off at the Dhekelia Exit. Turn right at the junction and turn left at the next roundabout.  Travel for about 4 kms until you reach another major round about and turn right toward Alexander Barracks (signposted).  Pass Alexander Bks and travel for another 2 kms and turn left at the CESSAC Café / Beach into Dhekelia Station.  Follow the signs for Lions Gym. 
 
Timings: Registration will be available from 1445hrs and the course will be open from 1530hrs. Last start will be at 1600hrs and the course will close at 1700hrs.
 
Courses: The course will be a Harris Relay practice prior to the Championships being held in mid April.  The course will be designed around an existing Station Commanders Cup Score course so may not technically challenging.  The practice will however allow teams to discuss and practice the challenges of a Harris Relay Course, especially in the planning stage.  This is a non scoring league event but an excellent chance for teams to prepare for the 2014 Championships.
 
Terrain: The course will be a mixture of rough undulating terrain (Bondu) and urban elements. There will be some road crossing points where competitors must take care of other road users.
 
Map: 1:10,000. Dhekelia Station, updated August 2011. Maps will be pre-marked and control descriptions provided.  Units with a large number of participants are requested to contact the event planner at least 48hrs prior to the event so that sufficient maps can be printed.
 
Equipment: Runners are to provide their own compass, pens and whistle. Full leg coverage is recommended.
 
Facilities: Toilets are available at the Lion Gym.   Water will be available at the registration area and the cafeteria (Snug) will also be open for hot beverages and food at personal cost.
