Orienteering Race - Penn Wood, Amersham

It’s a race with no set route - you have to find your own way around the course, between a series of checkpoints, using a special map we’ll give you. Chip timing, 3k, 5k, 6k and 8k courses - ideal for all abilities of runner. Expect hills, mud, and a few challenges around your course! Each checkpoint might be on paths, ditches, streams, or hidden behind vegetation. Be as competitive as you want - run, jog or go at your own pace, there’ll also be shorter courses for juniors too.

Just turn up and enter on the day, any time between 10:00 and midday. Courses close at 2pm. Your entry fee includes a special waterproof map to keep as a souvenir plus hire of a timing chip to record your progress at each checkpoint.
