Summer Series

Summer Series

Summer Series events are flexible, relaxed and low key. Times and courses offered vary from event to event to suit the constraints of the area and of the organiser. Anyone can come to an Summer event – you do not have to be a member, you do not need to have orienteered before, they are great fun. If you are new to Orienteering then click here to find out more about the sport.

Planning for the 2024 series is under way with a new co-ordinator, Ben Crone. If you are able to organise an event please contact Ben; some suggestions for potential areas is here.

Many events use the same format as our Winter Evening Events – a single course but with a 60 minute time limit; competitors take controls in the correct order but miss out as many as they need to in order to finish within the hour.   Check out the details for each event to see what will be on offer.  There is a fuller explanation of the format here.  Most importantly:  without volunteers to plan and organise there will be no series; guidance and support is available.

The June Jaunter is a timed mini-fell run around Clent and Walton Hills, which often forms part of the Summer Series.  Starting from Walton Hill car park, competitors have to visit the trig points at the top of Clent and Walton Hills, and the stile by Clent Church, in any order. The June Jaunter archive (Excel spreadsheet) contains a complete set of times from 1983 to the current year.
