CLARO will run a Spring O Series in 2018, a series of local orienteering events, between April and July. The events will take place on Wednesday evenings using proper orienteering maps, finishing with a Club Picnic event on the usual Saturday. They will use SI electronic timing for Start and Finish.
These events will usually comprise three courses: a “Long” course (Green standard), a shorter, “Short” course (Orange standard) and a “Beginner” course (White standard) that is suitable for juniors. The two longer courses may occasionally use more novel formats for variety, but there will always be a White standard course provided.
New for this season we hope to have an opportunity to socialise in a local pub after each event in the same way as those who attend LampOs will be used to.
