You are cordially invited to enter the SROC Lancaster weekend of urban orienteering racing to be held on 22nd and 23rd September. The Saturday event will be a two-part sprint using the Lancaster University campus, as used in the JK sprint of 2015. Sunday will see the first use of a brand new map of Lancaster city centre, with a chance to run close to many of the heritage features of this historic city. Please come back to this page which will be updated as more information becomes available.
On-line entries preferred, via SiEntries. Entries will open on 1st May 2018.
You may enter any course of your choosing in the Sunday event however the mapping of age classes to courses is as shown in the table below, and this matches most other similar events. In order to be competitive in your class at the Saturday event (NW Sprint Champs) you must be sure to enter the correct course as shown below.
NW Sprint Champions (only members of NW clubs eligible) will be declared by normal BOF age class, not the urban combined classes. There will be two separate sprint races with the total time taken being used to determine final positions.
