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 the main Black Park car park, run by Bucks County Council (note the parking charge) – registration tent will be near the lakeside cafe.
