Regional Urban Event


Saturday, 20 March 2010

Final details now available here (Word) or here (PDF).

WAOC proudly presents the first Huntingdon Town Urban Orienteering Race, a NopeSport Urban League event.

The event will use an extensive area of Huntingdon Town, newly mapped by Graham Gristwood.

This event is linked to the Midlands Championships event at Belvoir Castle the following day.

Urban Orienteering is a test of speed on the ground but also speed of thinking, with your choice of route being critical.

Huntingdon's historic town centre will present some intriguing challenges of navigation for all levels of competitor.

Photographs from a recent City Orienteering Race at Cambridge can be found here.
