Southampton Orienteering Club is celebrating its 50th year

Southampton Orienteering Club is celebrating its 50th year. As part of our celebrations, we are introducing a new event in an exciting format.

The Sunset and Beyond Relay pits teams of six against each other in a parkland and urban setting.

The early runners will start in daylight then, as the sun sets, later runners will compete in the dark.

Each team will have at least two female runners and be restricted to an age and gender maximum handicap. The competition will be tight with lots of head-to-head running helped by mini-mass starts just a few minutes later than the expected winning time for the previous leg.

You get the excitement of the Harvester in a four to five-hour event!

Date:  24 March 2018
Time:  5.00pm
Location: Fleming Park, Eastleigh, Hampshire.
Team captains can submit their entries now here
Entries are open now until Monday 19 March 2018.
Team declarations can be made at any time up until just before the event.
