South Ribble Orienteering Club
Lake District National Event Weekend 18th & 19th March 2006
National and IOF World Ranking Event
A New Area in South East Lakes
Also a UK Cup and Future Champions Cup event
Sunday 19th March 2006
NEW Start List Due to the large entry on some courses you may not have been given exactly the start time of your choice. Where possible families and others travelling together have been given similar times. These may have been dictated by the time of one runner on a popular course. In particular, late entrants are likely to have been given either a very late or very early start time.
Entries now closed. We have continued to take entries since the closing day of 27 February at the surcharged rate but stopped taking any further entries
today, 4th March. The event has proved very popular and we are approaching 1200 entries. Some courses are full and any more entries will put more strain on the car parking, particularly in bad weather conditions.
A limited number of non - technical Colour Coded courses are available on the day White, Yellow, Orange Light Green and Red.
On-line entries on 27 February Did we over charge you?
