Lakeland Orienteering Club are happy to host the Regional Middle Distance (Cumbrian Galoppen) race at Haverthwaite Heights.

The event is the first part of the LOC/SROC Spring Weekend with the SROC National (UKOL) event at Hampsfell to follow on the 24th March.

The Haverthwaite race is also Round 4 of the 2019 UK Elite League.

Haverthwaite Heights is one of the best areas of wooded orienteering terrain in the Lake District. It is a mixture of broadleaved and coniferous woodland, with some open areas, varying steepness of slope, lots of intricate contour details and many rock features, this area presents a significant challenge to the best orienteers. It was used for the British Middle Distance Champs in 2010.

The full event details are on the Lakeland Orienteering Club website event page.

There is a full range of courses for the Cumbrian Galoppen series except that unfortunately we are unable to offer a White or string course. The Black course is NOT part of the Galoppen competition and will not score Galoppen series points.

For the UK Elite League:

  • M21 runners must enter the Black course
  • W21 runners must enter the Brown course
  • For other runners wishing to take part in the UK Elite League please refer to Website.

Online entries will be open here until midnight 17th March and runners should select a prefered start block, Limited Entry on the Day will then be avaialable at the event. It is important that you provide all the entry details including British Orienteering membership number if you are a BO member for this event although you do not need to be a member.   

Hire SI cards will be available for this event for those competitors who do not own one.
