Race Description

A run with a difference! Race between the checkpoints as fast as you can, registering each one with an electronic timing chip, deciding your own route around the course. An orienteering race does not follow a set route. Instead you have to visit a series of checkpoints and the challenge is to decide what you think the quickest route will be between them and then to run your own way along that route using a special orienteering map. Courses for all ages and abilities, from 2km to 5km plus.

Just come along any time between 10am and 11.30am and we’ll get you started – there’ll be plenty of help on hand. There will be several courses to choose from, from 1km to 5km – taking around 30-75 mins to complete. Event registration and parking is at Oxhey Playing Fields (parking at Pavillion pub, Green Lane, Watford, WD19 4LS). Check out the details on our website for more info, or drop us an email at
