The opening event of NI’s first Urban Orienteering League:
The format – Middle Distance Urban – no nettles or brambles (unless you seek them out), little mud, and you can show off your legs if you wish.
Courses: There will be three courses on offer so everyone is catered for whatever your ability and experience, be it complete beginner or NI Champion.
For young kids under 13 and all family beginners; you get to play in the safe environment of the People’s Park.
For 13-15 year olds who wish to run unaccompanied, and adult beginners / novices there is an urban event with two timed out road crossings for safety.
Whilst for everyone else 16 and over I have planned a little ( ~4.5km as the crow flies ) jaunt around part of Portadown.
For the competition: 3 different classes: 12 & under, under 16’s, and Open, each split M/F with age class adjusted results so everyone starts on a level playing field.
