Orienteering in Bishopthorpe

Eborienteers invites you to an orienteering event in Bishopthorpe on Saturday 23rd February

Eborienteers organise regular events in and around York and North Yorkshire. This year, the club’s 50th anniversary year, for the first time we are using the streets and fields of Bishopthorpe for an event. The club has spent some time developing a new map especially for this event.

The club would very much like to invite and encourage Bishopthorpe folks to come and take part. We will welcome all ages and fitness levels, and there will club members on hand to explain and assist for anyone new to orienteering.

There will be a number of courses available from 1-5k that are suitable for newcomers and children, people who would like a change from their usual run, and of course more technical courses for experience orienteers.

The centre of operations will be at the Riverside Caravan Park, Ferry Ln, Bishopthorpe, York YO23 2SB and we will be using Bishopthorpe’s residential streets, school grounds and riverside fields.

Registration will be from 10:30am to 11:30am and starts will be from 11:00 to 12:00

For the one entry fee (Seniors £5.00; Juniors £2.50), you can try as many of the courses as you wish.

If you want to know more about this event please do contact the event organiser Simon Brook (simon.brook@lineone.net). For more information about orienteering the check out the club website at eborienteers.org.uk.
