Jesus Orienteering Klubb have announced details, and opened online entries, to the 2007 Chasing Sprint. The event will be held at Banstead Heath in the South East of England on Saturday 24th February.

This fast and furious event, comprising two races, sees competitors second start time determined by their time for the first race, with the first runner across the line the winner.

Last year saw a close affair in the women's race with Aislinn Austin taking victory, recovering the quickest to pip Pippa Whitehouse and Sarah Dunn to the finish after they all missed at the penultimate control. In the men's race Neil Northrop just had to keep his nerve in the final having given himself a 90 second lead from the first race.

Banstead Heath is a gem amongst south-east areas. It is fairly flat and consequently fast, however there are areas and bands of technical pits and earthworks which will force you to slow down and be careful. A fair splattering of paths, the vegetation is varied, various types of forested areas and open. You won't get bored, especially with the courses and the race format. A treat for all and an ideal Chasing Sprint location.

Men's Open, Women's Open, Men's 40+ and 16-, Women's 40+ and 16-
Winning times for all courses: Prologue 20-25min, Chase 16-20min.

Full details, and online entry, available on the JOK Website.
