Spring-O 2020

CORONAVIRUS:  Following BOF advice, CLARO has cancelled all events, including Spring-O’s for an interim 12 week period.  This expires shortly before the Spring-O event at Hookstone Woods on 10 June 2020.  As at 18 March 2020 therefore, that and subsequent events may go ahead.  This cannot be guaranteed, however.  Please check this page from time to time for updates.

CLARO will run a Spring O Series in 2020; a series of local orienteering events, between April and June. The events will take place on Wednesday evenings using proper orienteering maps. They will use SI electronic timing for Start and Finish.

These events will generally 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 and there will always be a White standard course provided.

Timings will usually be as follows:

6.00pm to 7.00pm – Registration
6.15pm to 7.15pm – Start window
Informal Training might be available – have a word at registration.

Entries: Seniors £3, Juniors £1. Dibber hire: £1.00 / 50p.

SI timing will be used for the start and finish. Hire dibbers will be available.


Quentin Harding will be running coaching sessions prior to some of these events.
