London Rat Race

SLOW becomes official partner of the London Rat Race 29-30 September!

I am proud to announce that SLOW has just become an official partner of the London Rat Race and that the Half Marathon Trail Challenge at Richmond Park on 23rd September (details here) also becomes an official practice navigation event for the Rat Race.

The London Rat Race is an adventure race being held in London with around 800 individuals taking part. To find out more about the event, please click here.

SLOW will be providing the use of SLOW orienteering maps for some of the navigation exercises and Andy Robinson will be providing planning advice. (The exact locations in use are secret!)

In return, the London Rat Race organisers will:

  • Advertise the club as a partner on their website here
  • Advertise the Half Marathon Richmond Trail Challenge on 23rd September as an official navigation practice event to all of those on their database
  • Allow SLOW to put a flyer advertising the club in the Rat Race’s goodie bag

The race organisers are also interested in having more volunteers to help out and this would also help promote the club. All volunteers receive a goodie bag that includes a Columbia Thunderscout jacket, Rat Race head Buff, stickers, treats, access to event village activities, food vouchers and VIP party tickets. More details on volunteering and how to get in contact are on the Rat Race website here.
