The Southern Night Championships – 21st Nov 2015
LOK organised the Southern Night Championships at Holmbury Hill in Surrey, on Saturday 21st November 2015.
Thanks to everyone who came along and competed on Saturday night. We hope you enjoyed it. Well done to everyone who completed what were quite challenging courses.
Congratulations to the Southern Night Orienteering Champions 2015. There are still a few trophies which were not taken away on the night – we’ll be in touch with those people.
London OK are a small club and our team of officials worked very hard to stage the event, kindly assisted by some Army personnel. Particular thanks to the planner Charles Spence and Mike Elliot (MV) our controller.
It was always going to be tricky to manage four separate car parks and we know that when the Near car park filled up, some cars were then misdirected and took some time to find a parking spot. Also we realise a few more tapes and glow sticks on the route from the Far car parks would have been helpful. Apologies for those problems.
The hall proved to be a great venue and thanks very much to everyone for leaving muddy shoes outside.
We have one item of lost property – White Adidas trainers size 8.5.

London Ultra Sprint Results
Following the (inaugural) London Ultra Sprints in Regent’s Park in 2011 and Victoria Park in 2013 , LOK repeated the same format in Waterlow Park as part of the London City Race weekend on September 13th 2015.
Competitors ran three heats on courses of approximately 1km with a high density of controls, including sections in a specially constructed maze, and there was a set of finals involving all competitors.
