- Course shall have route choice with prominent attack points near the control sites and/or catching features less than 100 m behind.
- Control sites may be fairly small point features and the control markers need not necessarily be visible from the attack point. Exit from the control shall not be the same as the entry (doglegs are not permitted).
- Simple navigation by contours and rough compass with limited distance estimation required.
- Use of a chain of prominent features as "stepping stones" is encouraged.
