Wimbledon Common Night O

The fourth race of South London Orienteers’ five event 2019-2020 Night-O Series takes place on Putney Heath & Wimbledon Common and , south-west London, on Tuesday 25th February 2020. The race centre is The King’s Head, Roehampton.

Our apologies to under-16s: at this race both courses cross minor roads (so our insurance precludes under-16s running alone) which means you will need to find an adult to keep up and run with you if you want to take part.
