26/4/21: At present, SOA guidelines state  SOA/BOF O club members only can attend events so if you’re one of our regular non-member Summer Series participants we’d still love to see you come along but could you just drop an email to membership@grampoc.com to arrange membership first please.

Fun, friendly events with something for everyone on Wednesday evenings. Beginners are very welcome – bring a friend, bring the family, challenge yourself learning new skills and get fit in the process!

All events will have 4 courses making them suitable for beginners and experienced alike:

  • easy (all on paths – white/yellow standard – upto 2km)
  • medium (partly on paths – orange standard – up to 3km)
  • two as-hard-as-we-can-make-it courses of different lengths (generally referred to as short and long tech with as-the-crow-flies distances between 2.5 and 5km)
  • technical training twist options for the tech courses

Comments are closed.
