Race 2 of the 2013 London Park Orienteering Series takes place on Wandsworth Common. The series is returning to an area last used four years ago, and was won by Nick Barrable. Who’s going to reap the glory this year?

The race is part of the London Park Race Series 2013 which is organised by the London orienteering clubs. Like all races in the series, the race is suitable for beginners. Electronic timing will be used.

Please note that the course will cross some minor roads. For insurance reasons, those under 16 years old will have to run with an accompanying adult. Full leg cover is not necessary; running in a T-shirt, shorts and trainers will be fine.

Registration and changing will be at The Roundhouse pub, on the north side of the park.
