nul :: city of london race


With three weeks to go until the City of London orienteering race, entries are flooding in from around the UK and Europe.

So far over 180 have entered, including competitors from France, Italy, Moldova and Spain, as well as from each of the home nations.

The opportunity to race through historic streets, on multiple levels and past iconic buildings seems to have captured participants imagination, and the race will certainly live up to expectations thanks to fiendish planning and a wonderful map.

The courses are still undergoing some tweaking, but the distance estimates given on the website with the expectation of running 50% further looks correct. The map is also being continually updated thanks to the ever changing nature of the City of London, with buildings being torn down and skyscrapers emerging on a monthly basis which has certainly kept planner and mapper Ollie O'Brien busy over the past year!

We'll have prizes courtesy of Clif and Nuun amongst others, and will look to have a prizegiving and social in a nearby pub allowing you to refuel while comparing routes with your fellow competitors.

Entries are open until the 30th, but don't delay as we could have to restrict numbers on certain courses! Full details will be available on the website after entries close.
