GLOSS Series 2019
This enjoyable series of events takes place with one event each weekend in a 5 week period. The GLOSS course is of Light Green standard and there is usually an extension for those wanting a longer run. It is also a team event with the best six scores from club members at each event contributing to our score. A handicapping system is used so anyone having a good run will score good points for the club. Click here for the 2019 handicapping details. There is also a Yellow standard course for newcomers and developing orienteers. The series flyer is here.
The events are:
Sunday 23 June Gunpowder Park Chingford
Sunday 30 June Barnes Common
Saturday 6 July Highfield Park St Albans
Sunday 14 July Belhus Woods Upminster
Sunday 21 July Nonsuch Park Cheam
