Orienteering – Barnes Common – Sunday 30th June.

Venue: Spencer Arms, Lower Richmond Road, SW15 1HJ

Registration: Between 10:00am and 12:00am, so after the Sunday morning track session. Electronic start, so basically when you are ready to go!

Entry: £6 for seniors, and £3 for juniors which includes electronic dibber hire.

Beginners new to orienteering welcome. No booking necessary – just turn up.

There are two courses: the main course which is about 3½ to 4½ km (with optional
extension to around 6 km) and is of moderate navigational difficulty and a ‘Yellow’ course which is about 2km with easier navigation. Navigate between control points – you decide the best route in order to complete the course in the quickest time. Younger children should run the shorter course accompanied.

These are good fun, you can run in a group, and there’s always a drink after!

If you want any more details you can visit South London Orienteers’ website, speak to me (Bob) or leave a message on the Sheen Shufflers Juniors Facebook page.

Easter Weekend

Don’t forget that there is no athletics this Easter Sunday – we will be back at the track again the following Sunday 28th April.

If you want to join us for a free Street Orienteering event we would love to see you Easter Monday 22nd April at 10am. The meeting and start place is at the north west end of Lauriston Road, SW19 near the junction with Southside Common. Don’t be put off by the word orienteering – it’s a fun event and there will be plenty of people on hand to show you the ropes. You can run/walk/jog in groups and you have one hour to visit as many clues as possible before you get penalty points. I’m told that there will be chocolate hand outs at the end! Please let me know if you are coming along so we know how many maps to print
