Claro are delighted to confirm that we will host a Middle Distance Regional Event on 25 November 2018 at Plumpton Rocks near Harrogate (not Ellington Banks as previously suggested due to access issues).
Claro extend many thanks to the owner of this amazing, natural playground, Robert Hunter, for his enthusiasm for our event. Robert has overseen extensive renovation to Plumpton Rocks over the last few years, so the area is in superb condition.
Map extensively updated by Quentin Harding, Planned by Ruth Ker, Organised by Richard Kirk and all Controlled by David Day.
Courses, all Middle Distance; Yellow, Orange, Light Green, Very Short Green, Short Green, Green, Short Blue and Blue. The area does not lend itself to a White course however the bold White competitor could tackle Yellow safely as the scope for disappearing is limited (it’s a bounded area with a large lake to go round).
On Wednesday 7th November, the next instalment of our popular Lamp-O series
Then very soon after on Saturday 10th November, the second of this season’s Junior league; all welcome with courses up to Long Orange.
Explore the city of Ripon by lamplight. Mass start at 6:30pm Wednesday 24th October. Hopefully the traffic won’t be as bad as getting to Knaresborough Castle for the last event… see you there.
Join us in Knaresborough for the Wednesday evening Lamp-O just after sunset (great views from the Castle hopefully). Don’t forget a torch / high-vis clothing (both essential), and enough cash for a beer afterwards in the Cross Keys (optional). Link from the side bar on the right or here. The car park is free after 18:00 , there is other parking nearby if full.
This fine and sunny Wednesday evening, why not have a go at the last of this year’s Spring O events. Use the link at the side for details.
Claro Junior League Event Cancelled
Unfortunately due to a clash with another event also taking place in Valley Gardens on Saturday we have reluctantly decided to cancel this Saturday’s event . We are looking to reschedule the final event in conjunction with the Junior league prize giving at the club picnic on the 7th July.
It may still feel a bit arctic, but the crocuses are well out on The Stray and British Summer Time is finally here. So, almost, is Spring-O! Be prepared to run through the proverbial dappled woods and then relax in a local hostelry with a cooling drink. Details are available here.
Well done to Matthew Rochester for a successful debut as Lampo planner last night. An excellent turnout – probably not far off a record. Results are now up. One more to go for this series, and the first time we have done a Lampo in Pateley Bridge, so don’t miss it.
Unfortunately it has become necessary to cancel the planned Regional Event at Guisecliff on Sunday 4 Mar 18 due to the prevailing weather conditions. The decision was made because it is considered that it would not be possible to run a fair or safe competition. Thanks to those officials who have already put in a lot of time and effort into this event.
Continuing the excellent series of Claro Lamp Os for winter 2018, this next one will be based at The Park (at the beginning of Hornbeam Park, Harrogate). Lots of parking available. Drinks and food in The Park afterwards. Meet 6.15 for 6.30 mass start.
The 1:5000 map ensures a clean-sweep will be achievable by all prepared to break into a sweat. For those who wish to remain fresh-smelling for the pub, the vast majority of controls will be in the Hornbeam Park area itself enabling lots of lamppost-bagging without undue effort.
Decent weather guaranteed. Bring a head torch, something to write with, a hi-viz garment and a mature companion if you are under 16.
We look forward to seeing you there. Ruth (Planner) and Tamsin (on-the-day Organiser)
