Thanks to the efforts of club member Peter Foulkes, we now have three Street-O training events available that you can run in your own time. These are the races previously held in Battersea, Wimbledon and Norbiton / Kingston. [UPDATE] We also now have training courses for club members available in Richmond Park and on Wimbledon Common.
Here’s how it works (more details are on our Permanent Orienteering Course page):
1. Select your event and print out the associated map
2. Download the App from the Google / Apple store
3. Run the event and see your result appear automatically when you finish
We hope you enjoy it!
Since this is an individual training run at a time selected by yourself it does not constitute an organised event and is not covered by the BOF Insurance Policy
You should only do these training runs if you can do so while adhering to the current government guidelines.
The last race before the coronavirus shutdown was the annual regional round of the CompassSport Cup.
Great work by London OK putting on the event on Hampstead Heath. It was a fine achievement by a small club -LOK are a “small club” in CompassSport Cup/Trophy rules, and indeed there were only eight LOK runners in the Trophy. Thanks very much to them for doing their bit for the sport.
We were matched with Southdowns, Happy Herts, Thames Valley and Southern Navigators. All clubs had full teams. We usually meet Southdowns and Happy Herts in this regional round, and we usually come second or third; in fact Southdowns won our regional last year and went on to come third in the final.
This year we won, thanks to a good turnout from the club and many good individual runs. The best course for us was five of the top six on men’s open.
Captain Peter Huzan deserves a lot of credit for the result. In his email to the club he noted the very valuable contribution from SLOW runners on junior courses: well done Yona Jacquemin, Matteo Rebora and Théophane Roux.
It was great to see the new O-top looking good on so many members.
