Elthorne Park Race, Tuesday 19 July

The final race of the 2016 London Park Race series takes place on Tuesday 19 July 2016 in Elthorne Park, near Hanwell. It’s a brand new area for orienteering. There are other Elthorne Parks in London – don’t go to the wrong one! Like all races in the series, the race is suitable for beginners. Full leg cover is not mandatory, running in a T-shirt, shorts and trainers will be allowed, but you may find some more direct routes on a few legs more comfortable with full leg cover.
