We’ve got a team event running(!) over the Christmas period which we hope will interest you. It promises to be fun and challenging – and as competitive (or not) as you want it to be…
2020 has been a strange year and there’s no sign of significant improvement yet. We hope this event lifts the spirits of those involved and provides some much-needed fun. Given that our Christmas parkrun is highly likely to be cancelled along with so many other events, we hope that teams enjoy this event and that it helps make Christmas more varied and more normal.
Our event is not unlike so many other successful virtual races that have been so popular this year. That said, we’re an orienteering club, so off-road is our preferred option. Runners must complete a course (stage) of a given distance. They must also ensure that the prescribed off-road percentage is achieved. Route planning is always a consideration, but for this event it’s an essential part of the process.
Have a look at the overview document. It should give you all you need.
There’s also a Facebook group.
You can signup your team here. You will need the name & e-mail address for each runner. You will be able to change your runners at anytime up until the start of the event.
For British Orienteering clubs there will be an additional league table. To qualify for entry into this league, ALL runners must be registered BOF members for the 2020 season (not registered after September 30th 2020).
Please share this note and encourage your running family to join us. Let’s make this a way to end 2020 with a smile on our faces.
If there are any questions, please let us know.
