Park O Series Info

Park-Os are friendly club events, usually in parks or school grounds, where children and newcomers are very welcome. These are fun events where you can get a feeling for the sport – you can walk or run, go as a group or on your own or challenge your navigation at high speed against some of our top competitive orienteers. 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 early Autumn and is 8 events this year. Certificates are awarded for the best placed in a variety of age categories.

Note slightly later start due to the Park Run taking place at 9am.

The SI tent and start and finish will all be close to the parking area near the SE corner of the velodrome.

Please also note that there is also a lot of junior football training that starts at 10.00, so the parking area is very busy around this time. Courses have been planned to avoid the football areas, which has added slightly to the distance for the Sprint course.
