JOK Chasing Sprint 2009 Flier

JOK Chasing Sprint - Whippendell Wood - 21 February 2009

The Chasing Sprint contains all the excitement of a chasing start in one day. Competitors run two short courses, the second of which will have starts determined by times in the first - and so first runner past the post wins.

Why not combine this event with the Burnham Beeches National Event near Beaconsfield the following day?

Location Whippendell Wood near Watford, is a runnable, undulating, deciduous woodland offering good orienteering. The event centre and parking is at Lees Wood campsite (GR TQ072986), an extension of the wood giving immediate access to the area. The area is less than 10 minutes from Junction 20 of the M25.
Courses Men’s Open
Women’s Open
Men’s 40+ and 16-
Women’s 40+ and 16-

Winning times for all courses will be 40-45 minutes for the prologue and chase combined.

All competitors will have at least an hour’s recovery time between the prologue and the chase.
