2017 sees the 10th LOG Winter Series, with a programme of 4 ‘Race the Lincoln Parks’ events running on Saturday mornings during October and November. Open to all, this series is suitable for everyone from novice to experienced orienteers.
Coaching and instruction will be available between 10am and 11am for beginners and improvers, with races to follow (from approx. 10am onwards). Start times for all races, except the first one, are between 10am and 12pm. Courses close at 1pm.
There will be 3 courses available at each event; a beginners course, a developers course and an advanced course. All of these courses will cater for both beginners new to the sport and for more experienced orienteers.
