Park O Series Info
Park-Os are friendly club events, usually in parks or school grounds, where children and newcomers are very welcome. Yellow and Orange courses are suitable for children to run on their own with a bit of practice. Adults are welcome to shadow children until they are confident to go on their own. Sprint courses are run or walked by any age group.
The Park-O series takes place in the early summer and is usually 6 events.

Courses will take you on a tour of the park, visiting a nice variety of terrain and will take place largely on soft ground. The northern end of the park rises slightly to an attractive summit where the Brighton seafront can be spied far in the distance.
