Southwark Park Race
The third race of South London Orienteers’ nine event 2019 Park Race Series takes place in Southwark Park on Tuesday 11th June 2019.
Southwark Park is a surprisingly large area; ideal but never previously used for orienteering. The long course uses some small urban areas on the park periphery to enhance the area even further. Underfoot will be mostly mown grass with some paved paths; all suitable for shorts and trainers.

Long and short courses are offered.
- Long: the optimal route is 5.8km. It is about two-thirds grass, one third paved. It involves some, very minor, road crossings but is therefore not suitable for under 16’s.
- Short: the optimal route is 2.7km. It is entirely within the park, about 80% grass, 20% paved, and suitable for all.
Registration: 17:45 – 19:30
Starts (500m away): 18:00 – 19:45
Courses close: 20:30
All competitors take part at their own risk.
Results will be available on the SLOW website soon after the race.
