Holmbury Hill (Surrey) Level B Orienteering Event (South East League) – 28th September 2014
This is an excellent orienteering area, last used at the British Championship Relays in May 2013. It is an area of mature, highly runnable, moderately hilly woodland with a mixture of re-entrants, spurs, gullies, and depressions, and providing a variety of route choice and some fine navigation challenges.
Members of the club train on Hampstead Heath every Thursday evening.
Where: Royal Free Hospital Recreation Club (includes changing and shower facilities) in Fleet Road, Hampstead (near corner of Pond Street, London NW3 2QG)
When: 6.30 p.m. for a 6.45 p.m. start, Thursday evenings.
We run for about an hour. The training is primarily just running but can include some orienteering practice. The training is open to all, including non-members and those new to orienteering or who only want a run – just turn up at the Recreation Club.
