Park Race 2 - Brockhole and Cragwood

Due to forecast bad weather this event has been postponed

Event date: Sat 13 Oct

Since there are severe weather warnings for Saturday and because of that Brockhole Park may be forced to close we have postponed this event.

Please follow this web page for more news and a re-scheduling date.  

 

This series of 3 events offers an introduction to orienteering for newcomers but also high speed racing for the experienced. A two part race, each of about 2.5km, for senior runners and a 'Mini' race aimed at younger children age 12 and under.

There are 3 events in the park series. The best 2 results will count to the overall series results with prize giving at the final event. For the sprint overall result both courses are to be run with total time being used for the standings at each event.

Prizes for the Mini winners M/W12-, and junior M/W16-, veteran M/W50+ and Open M/W on the sprint. There might be a super vet category for a single sprint course if sufficient interest.

What is Orienteering?

Orienteering Control, Source:

Orienteering is a sport that combines map reading and running. Competitors have to find their way between a series of checkpoints, called controls, as quickly as possible. There’s no set route between the controls, so you have to decide which way to go and then find your way there without getting lost.
