Olympic Park training event

1 August 2018 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Timber Lodge
Timber Lodge
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, 1A Honour Lea Ave, London E20 1DY

Learn or improve your orienteering skills with this training event at the Olympic Park. We will be using the permanent orienteering courses based in the park and the training should last for approximately one hour. You do not need to be a club member to attend – all are welcome.

Meeting Point

Meet next to the Table Tennis tables outside of Timber Lodge.


It is recommended to come by public transport where possible, to either Hackney Wick (Overground) or Stratford International (DLR, South Eastern). Stratford (bus, Central, Jubilee, Overground, TFL Rail, Greater Anglia, DLR) is a slightly further walk from the station to the start.

What Will I Learn?

For beginners: Club members will be in attendance who can help you interpret the map and offer tips on how to navigate successfully before trying one of the courses available.

For club members: We will focus on various techniques that will help you with urban orienteering, plus you will have an opportunity to learn how to handle challenges such as route choice when there multiple levels and uncrossable features.

Available Courses

Each week, one of the three North Park permanent orienteering courses will be used.

Short 1.8km

Medium 2.3km

Long 2.6km

Kit & Equipment

Wear trainers and something you will be comfortable running (or walking) in. Bring a cagoule if the weather looks like it might be wet (possible, even in this summer!!). If you have a compass, bring it along, although this is not essential.


We will go for refreshments afterwards in a nearby cafe or pub – you are welcome to join us if you wish.
