The penultimate event of the 2013 GLOSS series takes place on Streatham Common, The Rookery and Norwood Grove in south London on Sunday 14 July.

GLOSS is a friendly inter-club competition run on the Light Green course, with a fiendishly complicated handicap scoring system which favours the less experienced. All courses are open to all-comers, whether beginners or experienced. Details of GLOSS series are available from London Orienteering Klubb.

Transport and Parking

There is limited parking in the streets around the Common, but Streatham Common is very well-connected by public transport. Streatham Common station (9 minutes walk from the Waterfront) is directly connected to London Bridge (24 minutes), Victoria (17 minutes), Clapham Junction (10 minutes) and Balham (Northern Line, 4 minutes). From the station, head south and turn left on Greyhound Lane up to the common, where the pub is on the corner facing the common.
