The event has been registered as an activity with British Orienteering. First come first served.
At a quest, you will be given a  map, 1:25,000 scale for foot, 1:50,000 for cycle.It is not an organised event as such just a bit of training.
Marked on the map will be about 20 “controls” to navigate to. You MUST stick to public rights of way. 
At each control there will be a multiple choice question. E.g. Footpath sign:Third letter of destination?  C D E F G . You circle with a pen/pencil , or indeed  pierce with a sharp point, the correct answer, to prove you have been there. The control is given a value which is the same as its number. So the nearest are worth more, so control 20 is worth 20 points and will be nearest, control 1 is worth 1 point and will be furthest. You will be penalised harshly for being late, and rewarded for being early!
