West Anglian Orienteering Club

Park-O pilotCherry Hinton Hall ParkSat 09 February, 2019

Near: Cambridge
Level of event: Local
Type of event: Race



Results have been amended to correct for the fact that a couple of control units were not working for some of you (Control 5 on the Medium, course, and control 18 on the Short course)

We have also credited those who did not punch the finish control, but please remember that your run does not finish at the last numbered control - the clock stops when you punch the finish control (Double circle on your map).

We hope you enjoyed your runs at Cherry Hinton Hall, and we look forward to seeing you at our next events. We have an event at Royston on 10 March which will include junior courses suitable for ParkO participants as well as urban orienteering courses for the over 16s and adults. Our next ParkO will be at Wandlebury on 16th March.
