10 km Trail Challenge Races
Trail Challenges are mass start evening events run in London parks. Entrants are a good mix of running club and orienteering club members. There are prizes for male/female/veteran/junior winners.
South-East Score Orienteering Championships
This year, CHIG is hosting this at Broxbourne Woods, Wormley. For those of you who haven’t tried a score event before, the aim is to visit as many controls in a set time period, with penalties for late returners! In 2007 CHIG came 3rd out of 12 clubs. Last year, we did less well mainly because we were short of competitors. You are likely to get a phone call/email soon from Peter Cheetham, the organizer, asking if you can help.
City of London Orienteering Race 2009
City of London Race – 2009 will be the second year for this highly successful event. I know some of you entered the 2008 City of London race and really enjoyed it. Entries are now open for the 2009 event, hosted by SLOW. The closing date is 31 August 2009. This event forms part of the 2009 Nopesport Urban League.
