South East Sprint Championships 2018

QUEEN ELIZABETH OLYMPIC PARK

Saturday 16th June 2018

Forego your Park Run, forget the beach, drop everything and make it over to east London for an unforgettable race.

You think you know the Olympic Park from BSC 2016?

It’s in the usual two-part format, but be prepared for a surprise in an area new to orienteering. This will test your running and your navigation. Just a clue: in the Final the shorter courses use a map scale of 1:3000…

And, of course, make a South East weekend of it in the Relays at Holmbush on Sunday 17th June.
