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.)

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.)

Summer Series 2013

Many thanks to Naomi and the Langs for a very entertaining (and dizzying) event at Templars Park including multiple loops and 3 visits to some controls including the one at the top of the Scouts’ scramble net!

The Easy course had a jigsaw novelty element to it and the Tech courses got a quiz with really hard questions unless you were an out and out orienteering nerd!! For every correct answer, a minute was knocked off your time so worth a punt for those of us without cheetah legs. (BTW I wish to lodge a protest about the marking of the quiz as I maintain that at least 6 of my answers were technically correct, just not necessarily the one the Langs had in mind!)Templars Park results and quiz answers added below and the final overall points.

Summer Series 2013 Final Points


Summer Series 2012

A big thankyou to all organiser/planners for braving baking sun/midges/downpours to put on this year’s series and also to Sean, Neil and Anne for officiating or keeping the scores in various ways.

Overall points and Awards for whole series.

Congratulations to all Award winners, but special mention must go to Ondrej Masek who took part in all 15 events. We think this must be an all-time record. Anyone who did not collect their certificate etc at Templars should contact Anne Hickling to pick them up. She will bring them to the autumn sprint events on the next few Wednesdays.
