First orienteering contest for city
THE first ever orienteering competition in Salisbury city centre will take place next month. Sarum Orienteering Club is hosting the event, aimed at all ages and abilities, on November 2.
The event is sponsored by the Journal, Discover Adventure and Mule Bar, who have donated prizes, and BML Printers.
Courses of varying lengths will require competitors to visit a number of control points around the city, marked by orange and white flags, near roads, in parks and in school grounds.
Junior courses for children aged 16 and under will be confined to the Cathedral Close and Churchill Gardens.
There will be 5km and 10km courses to appeal to the city’s runners as well as the Sports Club Challenge, which invites local sports clubs to enter teams of three runners for either or both of the 5km and 10km routes.
A city photo map trail aimed at families will also be available.
This will involve matching up photos of city features with their locations on the map.
The event centre will be at Bishop Wordsworth’s School, with start times available from 11am to 2pm. For more details, including how to enter, visit salisburycityrace.org.uk or for further information about the 5km, 10km and Sports Club Challenge, visit sarumo.org.uk.
