It’s not quite the JK but to ease you back into orienteering we have resurrected the GO Christmas challenge for Easter!

The challenge is to complete 3 different GO VOCs during the 3+ weeks from Good Friday to Sunday 25th April. There will be some sort of handicap, still to be worked out, to make everything fair and to determine the GO VOC Champions!

[Runs completed by Richard and Nick during the Christmas dates will also count].

Even if you are not a member of GO you are welcome to join in,

There are urban courses at:

Farncombe – Start and finish in Broadwater Park car park
Farnham
– Start and finish in the Waggon Yard car park
Cranleigh – Start and finish just outside the leisure centre entrance, parking at the Village Way Car Park (GU6 8AF) adjacent
Guildford – Start and finish is at the pelican crossing SW of the leisure centre, near Wild Wood Adventure, parking at the Spectrum

All you need to do is print off a map from the GO website and download MapRunF to your mobile phone. It’s very easy and works well. See full instructions on the website here.

As these are urban courses, they are not suitable for under 16s to run alone – shadowed juniors are welcome to take part, or if there are under 16s keen to take part please let me know, you can use the VOCs at Stoke Park.

GO for it!
