The final race of the 2013 London Park Orienteering Series takes place at Battersea Park. The race is part of the London Park Race Series 2013 which is organised by the London orienteering clubs. Like all races in the series, the race is suitable for beginners. Electronic timing will be used.

For the first time in the Park Race series, this final race will be a Level C event, scoring British Orienteering ranking points. Starts will be at 45 second intervals, with start and finish just inside the park gates opposite the pub.

Full leg cover is not necessary, but there are certain route choices that might go through stinging nettles and brambles (marked as undergrowth on the map).

Registration will be at The Prince Albert.
