COVID-19, Event Cancellations

Given the current situation it has been decided to cancel all LVO events and training activities until the end of June. Obviously this is a constantly changing situation and we will review our decision as things progress. Stay safe and hopefully we will see you all in a forest somewhere on the other side.

SPORTEERING LISBURN

This Wednesday (4th) Sporteering continues its travels, this time to Lisburn. Meeting at the Ground Coffee Shop on Lagan Bank Road, beside TK Max.

The following week we’ll head out to Lisburn, so lets see some new faces. Sporteering is an excellent way to combine a training run Read More …

Sporteering Extra

Sporteering is an excellent way to combine a training run with sharpening up your map reading and route choice on the move. The score format means that all abilities can decide on how far and how long you want to stay out. To give us a break from Tim Hortons, we’re meeting at Slim’s Kitchen Read More …
