A classic-length urban orienteering event in Newcastle City Centre/ Ouseburn. This race forms part of the UK Urban League (UKUL), offering challenging age-group courses.
The start/finish will be on the Northumbria University campus in the city centre, with courses heading eastwards over the central motorway towards Ouseburn through streets new to orienteering. This complex area includes the ancient and modern city centre, post-war housing areas, a university campus, parks and steep-sided valleys to test the legs. The Open courses reach Newcastle’s famous quayside. Long urban courses give varied route choice and problems of navigation. Expected winning times range from around 60 min for Open to 30-35 min for Hyper Vets.
The event will be the third of the Jubil-O series of events held over the weekend of the Queen's Jubilee in June. Other events include the Fellgate Estate sprint event on Friday, organised by NN, and the Stockton Riverside sprint event on Saturday organised by CLOK.
