The British Long Distance Championships will be held on Arncliffe and Kilnsey North, on Sunday 5th May 2019.
- Previous maps (Routegadget)
- The competition area is subject to an embargo. Details are on the British Orienteering embargoed area page and on the Google Map here.
Terrain: The terrain is almost wholly open moorland, mostly very runnable, with a profusion of contour detail. It also features limestone pavement and much rocky and stony ground. Route choice will be complicated by uncrossable walls which can only be crossed at marked points: stiles or gates.
Travel to the Event and the Tour de Yorkshire: This cycling event will be going up Wharfedale on the same day. We cannot give exact details at the moment. There will be a lot of traffic. There will be a 45 minute rolling road closure at some point in the afternoon, and there may also be a Sportive ride.
