Saturday 24th April 2021
London OK invite you to a simple low-key Local event following British Orienteering Covid Guidelines.
Participants must follow the British Orienteering Covid-19 Code of Conduct
Subject of course to any further Government restrictions.
|TERRAIN||Open parkland and some wooded areas on a steep slope. Note that the slopes can be muddy so studded shoes are advised for the Green and Short Green. The Green and Short Green cross a main road several times. Unfortunately, we can only accept those age 16 and over on those courses, or under 16 accompanied by an adult. The Park is particularly busy at the moment; please take care to give the general public (dog walkers, families, etc) priority and observe social distancing.|
|TRAVEL/PARKING||Parking and start/finish/download will be at the North-East end of Alexandra Palace.
Parking Fee £3 per day which is a donation to Alexandra Palace charity. We do not have dedicated parking for the event. If the parking by the Palace is full, there may be places a little further away in the Paddock parking area.
