SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Sprint Series event 3

The next Summer Sprint Series event will take place on Tuesday 6th June at Salt Ayre, Lancaster. The existing Salt Ayre and Scale Hall map has been extended to include more urban sprint terrain which has not previously been used for orienteering. With a flat, fast course this could be a good chance to improve your points in the league! Like some of the other venues this race includes public roads with some fast moving traffic so is limited to 16 year olds and above (unless accompanied). The Prologue however is open to all ages.
