Events/Results, Summer Forest Sprint Series

Summer Forest Sprint Series 2011

GRAMP organised 3 out of the 6 Summer Forest Sprint Series 2011. Results from our events shown here – the Tollo Hill results are/were with the rest on the Maroc website for reasons I’ve forgotten now.

Sprint O is great fun – lots of controls in quick succession in a relatively short distance and fast running alone is no use in this discipline if it’s of the headless chicken variety! You really have to look closely at the map, make snap decisions about route choice, execute them quickly and cleanly while all the time trying to read a jiggling map and watch where your feet are going. Give it a go.

CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT EVENT? NEED A FIX NOW?

Then try a Permanent Orienteering Course in a local forest or park or try one of our Street O maps for a taste of urban O.
