Chasing Sprint

JOK puts on an annual event called the Chasing Sprint. The event consists of two parts: the prologue followed by the chase. The start times for the chase are determined by the results from the prologue in such a way that the first person to cross the finishing line is the overall winner.

2014 Chasing Sprint

The 2014 JOK Chasing Sprint will take place on Friday 17th October 2014, alongside Race The Castles. The venue is Birsemore, nr Aboyne (see Google Maps Location) on Deeside - the previous map gives a taste of the terrain on offer.

Courses: Men's and Women's Open, 40+, 55+ and 16-. The courses will use the best parts of Birsemore and so the main assembly area will be remote from the car parking.

Prologue starts are likely to be from 12noon to 1.30pm.

Entries will be open in early September on Fabian4 - further information will appear here shortly.

2013 Chasing Sprint
