York 50+ festival goers are very welcome to attend this week. Each week there are maps prepared for beginners and coaches available. We will be outdoors and jogging so dress appropriately.
For the regulars, a special treat for all those who like to complain: a map with a course which has an error on every leg be it a wrong description, a misplaced control or a feature missing from the map. A good test of observation, attention to detail and the ability to overcome problems during a course. Head lamps needed from now on I think. The course uses streets and woodland.
There are plenty of cycle racks and many of you can walk or run there but by car, access the school via Nunthorpe Avenue or Philadelphia Terrace (additional cycle/pedestrian access via Southlands Road). There is a car park at either side. Meet 6.30pm – first you need to find the Sports Hall… don’t enter the Sports Hall, instead go east to the north side of the next building. Look for the red & white orienteering kite.
