Cannizaro Park Orienteering – 27th June

Just a reminder:

South London Orienteers are hosting an orienteering evening at Cannizaro Park in Wimbledon. This is open to all Juniors (and their friends) providing that they run with a parent or guardian. I know that at least a couple of you have expressed an interest in giving it a go. Also, at the school where I do the after-school running club, a few of the pupils there are intending to run. I am already escorting a couple of the Shufflers Juniors round (you can run in groups), so would be quite happy to take ownership of your possession if they want to do the long run (5K) and give them a go at map reading. Similarly, there are a couple of other Mums who have done orienteering before and will be doing the 2.5K course on the evening, that are happy to help out.
Basically, you are given a map at the start and you have to find the check in points marked on the map – and there are clues. Once you get the hang of it, it’s a fun evening. South London Orienteers are expecting a good Junior turnout and have devised a course that will help first timers.

The headquarters, run reception, is at The Hand In Hand, 6 Crooked Billet, London SW19 4RQ . As it’s an electronic start, you can start any time you like, but I suggest that we meet at 6:15 so we can sort out the attendees. The cost of entry is £5 for adults and £2 for Juniors.

If you need any more information, or just want to let me know that you’re coming and who you’d like to run with, just drop an e-mail to sheen.shufflers.juniors@gmail.com

Orienteering

On the evening of Tuesday 27th June, South London Orienteers are hosting an orienteering event in Cannizaro Park, Wimbledon.

There is a course of 2.5K (if you manage to go straight from point to point) which has been designed with Juniors in mind – there is also a 5K course for the more adventurous. Although there is only one route of escape from the park, all Juniors still have to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. At the start you are given a map and you need to find the marked locations on the map (this is a big test for the parents/guardians). The entry fee is £5 for adults and £2 for Juniors.

Hopefully there will be a number of parents running, so if you can’t run yourself, but would like your treasured possession to have a run, please let us know via our Facebook page and we can see what can be arranged.

Registration for the event is at The Hand in Hand, 6 Crooked Billet, SW19 4RQ between 6:00 and 7:30. As the event is electronically timed you can start when you are ready.

Parklands Relay 14th June First draft results

At the end of the relays everyone wanted to know their time, but as soon as I handed them the clipboard and asked them to work it out for themselves, they handed it back it to me. So here are the results after the Junior teams went round a very challenging 4.5K course in extremely warm conditions in Richmond Park this evening. I cannot be certain they are 100% correct, but they will be corrected when I get the final results.

Street Orienteering – Tuesday evening – 9th May – Wimbledon

STREET ORIENTEERING TUESDAY EVENING 9th May.

Another chance to have a go after our Street-O in Mortlake in February.

The venue is The Hand In Hand, 6 Crooked Billet, London SW19 4RQ with a start time of anywhere between 18:15 and 19:30. It’s electronic timing so you start when you are ready.

All competitors take part at their own risk. You MUST be over 16 to take part in this event, unless you are accompanied by a parent or guardian. This is a condition of the race insurance. Cost of entry for juniors is £2.

The Street-O format has clues located at various points on a map e.g. house names, post box numbers, front door colour, cycle path mileage signs etc which you find and write down on your clue sheet. The more clues you find the answers to, the more points you get. You have 60 minutes to visit as many of these as possible, in any order, and return to the finish. Over 60 minutes and you get docked penalty points (as I’ve found out to my cost).

Please ask Bob or Bex if you require more information. They really are enjoyable events and ideal for children to take their owners out to for the evening!.
