You are cordially invited to enter the SROC Lancaster weekend of urban orienteering racing to be held on 22nd and 23rd September. The Saturday event will be a two-part sprint using the Lancaster University campus, as used in the JK sprint of 2015. Sunday will see the first use of a brand new map of Lancaster city centre, with a chance to run close to many of the heritage features of this historic city.

Championship Classes:
You may enter any course of your choosing in the Sunday event however the mapping of age classes to courses is as shown in the table below, and this matches most other similar events. In order to be competitive in your class at the Saturday event (NW Sprint Champs) you must be sure to enter the correct course as shown below.

NW Sprint Champions (only members of NW clubs eligible) will be declared by normal BOF age class, not the urban combined classes. There will be two separate sprint races with the total time taken being used to determine final positions.

The University campus is fairly flat with complex buildings, walkways and cut-throughs. The City includes complex old streets, newer build areas and public spaces and parks, with a few hills thrown in.

Lancaster University 1:4,000 updated 2018. Lancaster City 1:5,000, new 2018

SPORTident options:
Both events will use SI controls with contactless punching enabled. This means that those with SIACs can record their control visits by close proximity rather than physically inserting the SI-Card into the unit. When entering you will be given the option of either using your own SI-Card or SIAC or of hiring either.
