Last year (28th December) we held a mini-orienteering event for the children, which the adults ran first – the outcome being that when the children ran, the first six recorded faster times than the first senior! The event was a great success and demand was there for a re-run.
I have at long last been told that Richmond Park will grant us a permit to hold the ‘closed’ event, so we will be doing so on New Years Eve morning. We will try and get the seniors away by 9:15 and the juniors by 10:15. The purpose of this e-mail is so you can hopefully keep the morning free.
The run will be approximately 5K, although I will confirm nearer the time when I’ve been round the course, and maps confirmed as accurate! It will start and finish at Pembroke Lodge, will not cross over any main roads and will be free of traffic.
Maps will be given to all runners at the start and there will be waymarks at each checkpoint.
This is a fun event – I will be in touch closer to the time.
