Our Next Events:
6th June 2021
The first of our Simon Peck Summer Series will be held in this attractive wood on the slopes leading down to the River Orwell. The area provides an excellent opportunity to practise identifying contour and vegetation detail - what better way to get back into orienteering after lockdown?!
There will be three courses: Nice and easy (1.7km 40m climb), Not too bad (2.0km 45m climb) and Harder (3.6km 115m climb). The cost will be £4 for adults, £2 for juniors and £5 for groups.
We'll be following the British Orienteering guidelines for a Covid-safe event & all participants will need to pre-register. Entries are limited to SuffOC members until 14th May, & all club members should have received an email with details of the event. Any remaining places will be available for other experienced orienteers after that date.
20th June 2021
Our second Summer event will be held in the small town of Clare, which lies between Haverhill & Sudbury & which has been newly mapped for the occasion. The event will be based at Clare Castle Country Park and the adult courses will include the parkland, the Augustinian Priory, the mediaeval town square and the ancient common with its earthworks, together with the more modern residential areas. Junior courses will be based in the parkland & adjacent quiet roads.
The British Orienteering guidelines for a Covid-safe event indicate that all participants need to pre-register: details of the entry process will be published in due course.
