For experienced orienteers and those new to orienteering, young and old, runners and walkers.
With thanks to the Friends of West Bank park, we will run three courses:
Long course will go further afield in to the streets surrounding the park, and will be 4-5k. This will not be suitable for juniors due to the roads, but will appeal to runners trying orienteering and for experienced orienteers.
Short course (2-3k) will not go as far afield and will suit novice adults. Juniors may do this if accompanied by an adult.
Beginners course (1-2k) will be ideal for juniors as it will be entirely within the park boundary, and will suit families going round together or allowing juniors to do their own thing.
Entry fee will allow entry on to more than one course if you wish.
