A series of 45 minute score events based at a local pub. First one 19th October, and fortnightly thereafter to 14th December. The next one is from the Walnut Tree, Heworth Village. Woodthorpe result now uploaded.
How many controls can you find in 45 minutes? Maps are 1:7500 and there will be 30 lamp posts to find.
There will be a mass start at 1830 and you will need to be back by 1915. Points for each correct lamp post found, penalties if you are late back! This will appeal to orienteers and runners looking for a bit of variety alike.
Meet at the given location at around 6-15 pm for briefing, map distribution, and issue of control cards. Time for post run analysis in the chosen hostelry.
Don’t forget your headtorch and pen!
Due to the fact that these events are on the streets around the given locations, any juniors under 16 years old will need to be accompanied by adult.
Enter via racesignup or by email to the organiser. Entry on the day can be done if you just turn up with your £3!
