Wimbledon Common Night-O

The fourth race of South London Orienteers’ five event 2018-19 Night-O Series takes place on Wimbledon Common on Tuesday 26th February 2019.

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.
