Final overall series results

For the four Tuesday events in July, we are going to have a “Park Orienteering Race Series”.  Your best 3 out of 4 races will count.  The courses at these events will be generally approximately 5 km long.  The scoring will be like the street-orienteering series with 50 points for the winner, 45 for 2nd place etc.  There will be some small prizes for leaders at the end of the series (including some special categories, eg best non-orienteer).  The events are easy to get to by public transport and there will be a designated pub for socialising afterwards.
