Race Location

Battersea Park was used for the Sprint Final in the series of World Cup races held in the region in 2005. It is generally thought to be the best (from an orienteering perspective) of the inner London parks. The map is 1:5000 scale with 5m contours, and includes recent updates for new fences and clearance of thickets.
