Bristol Old City Sprint Race - Sunday 29th September

12-09-2013

Results are here.

Sprint Race around the alleyways and cobbled streets of the Old City, multi-level sixties walkways, and a Georgian park square, all topped off with a taste of the Floating Harbour.

Start/registration 10am-1pm on the junction of Baldwin Street and Queen Charlotte St, BS1 1PN. Entry on the day £2-4.

Senior course 2.6km straight line, 3.4km optimum. Juniors 1.5-2km. Brand new ISSOM map. Map and courses have been tested and approved by a mystery elite orienteer. Butterfly loop on the longer course. We have just got some last minute permissions making the courses even better.

On 29th September the roads are closed in the city centre as part of mayor George Ferguson's Make Sundays Special initiative. We though this was a great opportunity to stage a UBOC event and bring orienteering right down into the heart of the city. This one's flat unlike the BOK Blast!

There are lots of other things going on as part of Make Sundays Special (11am-4pm, see the link above) and caterers will be situated nearby.

Parking: There are good rail links to Bristol but if you want to bring your car here is the MSS parking information.

Keep checking here for more details. Here's the flyer and the link to similar information on the British Orienteering site and Attackpoint. Any questions then please comment below.

Mapper, planner, organiser: Duncan Birtwistle (07884 196677)


So the big secret is that this is UBOC's first fully self-sufficient event in a long time (ever?) - using a map we have made, with permissions organised by ourselves, registered by the club and using all our own equipment. So expect a good map and good courses (all you need really) but a touch of a inexperience in other areas. The main thing to note is that we only have ten SI-boxes so some controls will have pin-punches instead - we don't believe this will detract significantly from your run. We are learning all the time so please be forgiving and give us lots of feedback!
