….apart from not being very summery (!) has got off to a good start again and we’re seeing quite a few newcomers as the result of the pre-series coaching and promotion. This is great but causing a few headaches for our coaches as there simply aren’t enough of them to go round!
Whilst we will always try and have someone allocated to welcome newcomers and provide hints and tips, if I could ask our regulars to look out for new faces and make them feel welcome by saying hello and offering any assistance, it would be much appreciated.
Summer Series points after two events
Click on area names above for maps showing location.
One course TD3 or Orange standard, about 3km, with lots of controls and route choice in a relatively small area so full on concentration required just as much as fleet feet. Great for developing Juniors too if accompanied by a TD3 standard runner. Best 4 scores out of 6 will count towards the FSS league results.
Registration and Starts: 18:00 to 19:00 (unless indicated otherwise by the planner)
Fees: £4 Senior, £2.50 Junior/Student
Results links will be added as they come through and the overall Forest Sprint League results will be found on the Maroc website. Best 4 of 6 scores count towards your final score and, who knows, maybe even some lavish prizes.
Get out, get some fresh air, get fit! Bring the kids and friends and make a real family outing of it or pit yourself against our resident experts and really go for it – the choice is yours but we can guarantee you’ll enjoy it either way and look forward to welcoming back our regular Summer visitors for this year’s fix!
Seniors £3, Juniors/Students £1, groups welcome and we’ll only charge you £1/extra map.
Come along and register between 6:30 to 7.30pm and ask advice if you need it. You can start your course any time you like but bear in mind we will declare courses closed and start collecting controls at 8:00pm (maybe earlier towards the end of summer and evenings get darker quicker.)
There are 3 or 4 courses on offer every evening:
EASY (Yellow Standard) approx 1.5 – 2km along paths, fences, streams and other linear features
MEDIUM (Orange Standard) 2.5 – 3km getting a bit more adventurous with controls a short way off the linear features and scope for cutting corners30 minutes running to 60 minutes walking, approx 2.5-3km
TECHNICAL COURSES (Light Green/Green Standard) 2.5 – 3km and 3.5 – 4.5km options for the experienced orienteers or those up for a challenge (but don’t forget the 8pm cut off.)
