Event Description

Our Fun in the Sun summer season meets Urban League:
OCOUL 4 : The middle event in 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. FUN and SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE.

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 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. If you’re interested, all you ladies are being compared to Charlotte Ward, and all you gents to Graham Gristwood and Oystein Kvaal Osterbo so we’ll see if we have any future stars in our midsts.

1. OPEN : over 16’s only if unaccompanied. Under 16’s can do this course only if accompanied by an adult.

2. YOUTH & NOVICE : For 13-15 year old’s who wish to run unaccompanied, and adult beginners / novices.

3. JUNIOR & BEGINNERS : For young kids under 13 and all family beginners. All good fun and an introduction to Urban Orienteering: All within the safe confines of Craigavon Lakes with no roads to cross.

PARKING : Craigavon Civic Centre. NB the site closes at 5 p.m.
