Event Details

Thursday 17 August 2017 Summer League 18 Market Bosworth Park

Event Level: Local
Notes: Now for something a bit different

Courses: Still short, medium and long, but this time both long and medium will be NORWEGIAN style. That means you find out the course by each control having a map showing the next control.

Long 4.0 km, with a map in the town, but map memory in the Park
Medium 2.8km with a map for both sections.
Short 1.8km regular orienteering all in the Park.

Car Park: will need a pay on exit ticket £2.50 for two hours.

Roads: Both Long and Medium courses cross public roads, and great care is needed. (under 16s on the Medium or Long take extra care)

Starts from 5.30 pm

Summer League 2017

Suitable for Beginners?: Beginners are welcome. Please arrive early and preferably let the organiser know in advance so that you can be sure to get advice from an experienced orienteer.
Large Groups?: If you intend to come to our event as part of a large group, eg Youth group, Scouts, Cubs, Athletic or running club, it would be helpful to let the Organiser know in advance. This ensures we can have enough maps available for you and avoid disappointment.
