Orienteering challenge

THE location for the next Saturday Orienteering Event organised by the Humberside and Lincolnshire Orienteers is on Beverley Westwood on Saturday, September 29.

In addition to the normal courses, this event will also feature a longer, but easier, course for experienced runners.

Registration, start and finish will be to the south of Newbegin Pits on the Westwood/Walkington Road.

The Saturday events are aimed at beginners to the sport but always include a technical course for the more able.

There will be four courses ranging from one for junior beginners to one for experienced orienteers.

Starts will be anytime between 1pm and 3pm.

Entry fees are £2 for adults and £1 for juniors. This includes free hire of the chips which are used for the electronic timing of the event.

Harder courses can be attempted for no extra charge after successful completion of the easier courses.

The Beverley Westwood event will be the first in HALO’s 2012 Autumn Saturday league

Full details of the 2012 Saturday League and all events can be found on the HALO website (www.halo-orienteering.org.uk).
