The 2010 Cumbrian Galoppen
|The various venues are now in final planning phase, with
currently ten events included. This may change over the coming month(s), but the
outline below looks like the making of a great series. A map of Cumbria gives a
rough idea of where the event is based. Closer to the date of the event the
various details will be published.
As usual seven different courses will be offered at each event, all colour coded, from the easiest Yellow, to the most technically challenging Brown. Anyone is welcome to come along. The courses are Yellow, Orange, Lt Green, Short Green, Green, Blue and Brown.
Parking is usually in a large field, with a central point for registration for the course you wish to try. Entry fees are very reasonable, probably £5 per senior and £3 per junior. The events will all use SPORTident electronic punching, which gives you a quick result when you finish with a printout of your progress around the course.
Newcomers regularly turn up at these events and are helped by friends or other orienteers to get started. If you would like some help/information then EMAIL and your query will be answered or passed on to a club.
