Richmond Park Half Marathon 2013

South London Orienteers present

Trail Challenge Half Marathon

also including 12K and 6K Trail Challenges

Sunday 13 October 2012, Richmond Park

A TRAIL CHALLENGE is a mass start cross-country race with a difference. The course is not marked by marshals but is instead defined by checkpoints on a professionally made colour map. The Challenge arises from choosing the fastest route between the checkpoints. The course follows trails and paths in one of the best cross-country running areas that London has to offer.
