Ruffey Lake Popup Sprint Will A-Maze You

Organised by a crack team, this is a fund raising event for the coach-in-residence program. It will feature fast and furious racing with a mind-bending labyrinth section to test your skills.

  • Maja Alm (Short, ~1.3km, suitable for beginners)
  • Thierry Gueorgiou (Middle, ~2.0km, technical)
  • Olav Lundanes (Long, ~2.7km, technical)

Talk to the event team after your run for a chat or hands-on help with any aspects of your orienteering you’d like to improve – we’re happy to help!
