Hills Killer


Hills Killer - Sunday 25th September 2011

Online registration has now closed but you can enter on the day. HK ENTRY FORM 09.pdf Competitor notes 2011.pdf

This year's HILLS KILLER will use the reverse route. All rides will finish at The Apple Farm at Freshwater. 3 hills will start at Chale Green, 7 hills will start at Ninham Farm, Shanklin and 14 hills will start at The Apple Farm.

The ride is made up of a series of checkpoints that are placed across the island, which will be identified by an Ordnance Survey grid reference and orange tape will be placed at each location. The co-ordinates for these check points will be given to you on the day.

Once you have registered you will be issued with a number, a card with the control point locations and a SPORTident chip that you will need to use at each checkpoint. This will monitor your progress and log your time around the course. Return the chip undamaged to us at the end of the event to receive your prize.
There will be a map with the Control Points set out for you to plot your route at the start. At each control point, place your chip in the box. Any missed or wrongly punched checkpoints will mean disqualification from the event. 14 Hills riders need to vist the control points twice.

Your recorded finish time will be when your Si-Card is inserted into the finish SPORTident box. It is NOT when you enter the grounds of the finish area.  Downloads for the Si Cards will not be available until 12pm.

Please remember that this is an orienteering event, and NOT a race. Riders are invited to enter the ride on the understanding that it is for personal achievement only.

Thank you to Wight Mountain who supported the event last year - see their website for pictures from the event.
