The NSL is a series of events that are usually held every other Thursday evening during the darker nights. The format is a 60 minute mass start score (in which runners visit controls, or checkpoints, in any order they want) with more details in the event fliers.
Newcomers and non-members are very welcome to take part. If you are new to Orienteering then click here to find out more about the sport.

A headlamp / torch is highly advisable, but it need not be a full-power terrain night-O one. You should also wear a light / reflective top to help ensure you are seen. Whistles may be required, depending on terrain. There is a fuller explanation of the format here. Most importantly: without volunteers to plan and organise there will be no series. A guide to planning these events is here, with additional support available from the league organiser. There is also guidance for making the event accessible.
