Locations

40 markers to find

ENDS 30TH SEPTEMBER

The Hatch Warren Orienteering Challenge gives everyone a chance to get out and about while face-to-face Scouting is not possible due to the current pandemic.

The challenge is a series of 40 locations around Hatch Warren and the surrounding area.

The Locations

MOVED MARKER

Location 29 has been moved as of 29th August. New location is given below.

These are all 40 locations in the Hatch Warren Orienteering Challenge.

You can find them in any order so all you need to do it work out the location and get outside exploring!

Moving markers

For a variety of reasons we may have to move a marker during the challenge. This will only be done if absolutely necessary and we will make it clear on here as soon as a marker is moved by adding “NEW LOCATION” to the entry below.

Missing markers

Sadly from time to time our markers may go missing. 

If you believe you have searched the correct location and cannot find a marker, please let us know so that we can check and replace if necessary. Please log the marker and use the passcode ‘MISSING’.

Once we know a marker is not in place we will show it below as crossed out. We will replace the marker as soon as possible.

Do be sure to check here regularly, particularly if you are going to be making special trips to find a location.
