Sprintelope North Berwick  Wednesday 16th May 2018


Graeme Ackland of Interlopers kindly offered to be guest planner for Urban courses this week – so this event will fit our usual SprintELOpe pattern  …

This is the third ELO event in the summer 2018 Sprintelope series taking place on Wednesday evenings. These are lightweight informal events featuring a mix of traditional White and Score courses within a public park for youngsters and longer Urban courses in the surrounding area for adults.

Because the Urban courses involve road crossings, under 16s can only tackle these courses if accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.

For the Score course you will find it useful to wear a watch to keep within the time limit. The Score course will again have an extra rule – odd numbered controls don’t count after you have visited any even numbered control.

Lodge Grounds is regularly used by dog walkers.
