GLOSS is a friendly inter-club series of competitions, with a handicap scoiring system which favours the less experienced. All courses are open to all-comers, whether beginners or experienced.
SLOW's event will be based at Gunnersbury Park, with Assembly close to the Gunnersbury Park Sports Hub.
An overview of the GLOSS series is available from the coordinating club, London Orienteering Klubb.
We are offering two courses in line with GLOSS guidlelines - A GLOSS (light green standard) course of 4km with an optional extension of 1.5km (actual overall distance run will likely be 25% longer) and a yellow course of around 2km. Start will be from 10:00 to 12:00, although this may be extended depending on entry numbers.
There is no conventional Entry on the Day. However, we will leave the Pre Entry system open until 11:45 on the day of the event so you can pre-enter on the way to the event - the system will only allow entries if sufficient maps and start times are available. There will be one start with one competitor starting on each course each minute. HOWEVER WE RECOMMEND YOU ENTER EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT.
The assembly location is 12 minutes walk from Acton Town tube station (Picaddilly and District lines), or approximately 20 minutes walk from Gunnersbury or Kew Bridge stations). There is limited parking available within the park. If full, you are advised to find on-street parking in residential roads to the north and west of the park.
There will be no results display but results are anticipated to be updated to the results website every few minutes during the event.
