Race Guide
Great Hampden and Whiteleaf Orienteering Races

Date / Time
Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.
Length 3.11 miles (5.0 km)
Description

 

Thames Valley Orienteering Club invites you to try an off-trail run with a difference - it’s a race with no set route!

 

 

 

There’ll be several courses, up to 5k, and no experience is necessary. You’ll receive a special map showing your course, consisting of a series of checkpoints. At each point around the woods and estate, you’ll find a marker flag. The challenge is to race between the checkpoints, using your map to choose your route between them and registering them with an electronic timing chip. They might be on paths, or around the woods. Expect some mud, stream crossings and a lot of fun! When you return to the finish, your timing chip will be downloaded and you’ll receive a print out of your result & splits.

 

 

 

It’s also a great family activity - we’ll have shorter courses for children & families.  Just turn up and enter on the day, any time between 10:00 and 11:30. Courses close at 2pm. Entry fees are just £10 for adults and groups; £4 for solo juniors. Your entry fee includes a special waterproof map to keep as a souvenir plus hire of a timing chip to record your progress at each checkpoint.

 

 

 

Parking in field at junction of Kop Hill and Peters Lane, west of Princes Risborough, HP27 0RP (not the Whiteleaf Cross car park). WCs, catering, running kit trader in attendance.
