Our Urban Sprint O series is being kicked off for us by Eric Lovie at Cove Bay.

One course 3.1km   Orange/Medium standard

(That’s as the crow flies – actual distance covered in urban is about 1.5 times further)

SI controls will be used. We can lend you a dibber if needed.

Starts: 18:00 to 19:00ish
Fees: £5 Senior, £2.50 Junior/Student – contactless payment preferred
Please note that to comply with British Orienteering insurance requirements juniors under 16 should be accompanied by an adult.

Urban maps have some special symbols so make sure you know what’s Out of Bounds (olive green) or can’t be crossed (thick black lines) as it’s private property.
This mock up of an urban map explains Sprint (ISSOM) symbols in more detail.

Urban O means you may have to cross roads and although speed limit is 30mph in Cove Bay there’s still potential for a serious collision so ca’ canny, look both ways and don’t risk it for the sake of a few seconds please. Also take care when running round blind corners so as not to flatten any unsuspecting locals and give dogs a wide berth.
Oh, and try not to grin too much while you’re having fun dashing round the urban ‘maze’ as your face will really ache the next day.
