The November Classic Weekend - 3rd 4th November 2018

Southampton Orienteering Club (SOC) and British Army Orienteering Club (BAOC) present The November Classic Weekend on 3rd and 4th November 2018.

On Saturday 3rd November, Winchester is the venue for an exciting urban event including newly mapped areas of the historic city. Robin Smith has planned the full range of urban courses for the event which features in SEOUL and makes the best use of the intricate map covering Winchester's challenging urban terrain.

The Classic on Sunday 4th November uses one of the New Forest's best and least used areas, Hampton Ridge, and promises to provide a top class orienteering experience on a brand new map by Nick Nourse. Hampton Ridge was the venue for the British Championships in 2009 and hasn't been used for a National event since then. Andy Nash is the planner for the event which is an Interland selection race for juniors.

Online entries are still open at Fabian4 until Sunday 28 October - join 750 other orienteers for an exciting and challenging weekend!


British Orienteering would like to take this opportunity to thank volunteers from Southampton Orienteering Club and British Army Orienteering Club for their hard work in putting this event together and wish members an exciting Classic Weekend of orienteering.
