26/11/2014 - Mince pies, mulled wine & Christmas nights

As our only events in December this year are at the beginning of the month, our seasonal celebration will be early. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served at our event at Lanhydrock on 7th December.  The flyer for the event can be downloaded from the link over on the right. Everyone welcome.

But the night before we have our event at Tehidy. Here's what the planner, Phil Newall, says.

"The next Kerno night event will be at Tehidy Country Park, just off the A30. There will be a Christmas flavour to the event, prizes for the three courses and bonus points for those who turn up suitably attired!

For those who are not familiar with it, Tehidy is a council run forest of mixed woodland with a good path network. It also has well defined boundaries which make it ideal for a night event. Although not a complex forest it  makes for a good challenge in the dark.

Please note that start times will be a bit earlier than usual, 5.30 - 6.00pm with courses closing at 7.30. 

For directions follow brown signs to Tehidy Country Park off the Tolvaddon junction on the A30, with parking at grid ref SW647435 (ignore the No Entry sign near the parking area.)

Hope to see you all there for what should be a fun evening." 

23/11/2014 - Perran Sands results


Who'd have thought that navigating round the holiday camp could be so tricky. All those identical caravans meant that you really had to keep in touch with the map. The results are available here.

The next night event is at Tehidy on 6th December.

21/11/2014 - Dartmoor Search & Rescue

Dartmoor Search & Rescue are in with a chance of winning National Lottery funding towards buying a 'rescue drone'.

They are seeking the support of the public in the forthcoming People's Millions vote due to take place on ITV on Monday 24th November.

Full details can be found on their website under 'rescue drone project'.

17/11/2014 - Craddock Moor results


The results for yesterday's event at Craddock Moor are available here.

Please read the comments for an explanation about the misplaced controls and how competitors' times have been adjusted.

17/11/2014 - Night Event 22nd Feb

Our next night event is on Saturday 22nd Nov. at Perran Sands.

The entrance to the Perran Sands Holiday Park is off the B3285 Goonhavern to Perranporth road at SW 769548.

Then follow the direction arrows to the Touring & Camping areas.

As this is a small event please make sure you have visited toilet facilities before you arrive.

Three courses on offer around the Park - not as easy as it might seem!

Lengths about 2km, 3km and 4km.

Start times as soon as it's dark enough but from 1800 to 1900.

Courses close at 2000 (or earlier if everyone is back).

We will meet afterwards at the New Inn, Goonhavern for post event refreshments.
