Details for the final Summer Series event are now available from the fixtures page. Please note that previously advertised start times are incorrect. There will be a choice of two mass starts: 6.30 or 6.45, so please make sure to arrive in time. If running Street O on dark Winter evenings has never appealed, come and have a go in daylight!

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Summer Series - Beacon Fell Sunday 6th July

If you're going to this event, and are willing to help for an hour or two as well as run, could you please contact Bill Cook on or leave a message on 01524 735862. This will be a low-key, friendly event & would be ideal for newcomers who haven't gone 'behind the scenes' before at an orienteering event. This is a really good way to learn more about the sport, and to get to know people in the Club better.

Yes, the SROC Summer Series isn't just about enjoying yourself on glorious summer evenings, there's a serious side as well. Prizes will be awarded in a number of categories, depending on your best three scores in the whole series. See the scoring method and current postions after two events.

Summer Series event 2 at Beacon Fell included an exciting loop race, as was experimented with last year. We have encountered a few minor problems in processing results, these should have been fixed by the next event but there will be some gaps in the split times shown for Williamson Park and Beacon Fell. Because of the problems there were three runners disqualified in error last week, they have now been reinstated. All the results can be viewed via the Summer Series page.
