2019 will see the hosting of our 21st GPC / 3 Parks In 1 Day Event.
Following on from the 1999 PWT Event in Kelvingrove Park , STAG initiated this event which was probably the forerunner to SPRINT ORIENTEERING.

Please read on for updated plans as of 27th November 2019.

The venues for this year in order are most likely to be :

Race 1 - Glasgow Green - NS 600643 -  no facilities - First Start 10am.

Race 2 - Queen's Park - NS 579617 - distance from Glasgow Green - 3.5 miles. Café-Toilets {note changed of venue} - First Start 12 Noon.

Race 3 - Pollok Country Park - NS 562621 - distance from Bellahouston Park - 2.1 miles. - Toilets - Chasing start from 2pm.

Glasgow Green is a short walk from Glasgow City Centre.

Please tick the box if you require a lift between venues 1 > 2 > 3. 

The distances are such that cycling does appear to be a viable option if being considered.

Race Format: 3 races. Races 1 & 2 aiming for an Estimated Lead Time of 10/13 minutes in each Class . Race 3 - Chasing Start - Estimated Lead Time of 22/25 minutes in each Class.
Last year to mark the 20th Anniversary of this unique event, New Trophies were awarded within the “Open” & “Open Women” Classes to the 1st, 2nd & 3rd placed Boys & Girls (M/W18s & under) - STAG’s FUTURE STARS - who entered & completed the Open & Open Women Classes respectively. It is a expected that these Juniors compete regularly at Light Green Standard.

A similar award shall be incorporated this year but please note that the 2018 Winners - Peter Molloy & Alice Wilson - are no longer eligible in this category.

Further Provisional Race Information can be found on STAG Website.
