Cannizaro Park Race, Tuesday 27 June

The fifth race of the 2017 London Park Race series takes place on Tuesday 27 June 2017 in Cannizaro Park, off Wimbledon Common. This is a small but very complex park with many navigational challenges, and this is the first time it has ever been used for orienteering.

Like all races in the series, the race is suitable for beginners. Note that full leg cover is recommended for this race, but running in shorts will be permitted at your own risk (you have been warned!). A T-shirt and trainers will be fine on top and underfoot.
