  • Park-O Pioneers Awarded Sport England Grant
Last Updated: Thu 23 May 2019

We are delighted to reveal that WAOC has been awarded a substantial grant by Sport England, to develop our Park-O series, aimed at introducing youngsters (and their parents) to the sport.

This will build on the success of our pilot Park-O events, some of which have attracted well over 100 participants, most of whom are new to the sport.

The grant will support a programme of monthly Park-O events in Cambridge from now until the end of the school summer term in 2020. We are already seeing really good turnout from local schools and the grant will allow us to set up a schools league, where runners can earn points for their school at each event they take part in.

The next Park-O is at Wimpole Hall Estate on 15th June, after which we will take a summer break with the new series beginning in September.
