The event will be open from mid-May to Mid-July. If lockdowns or similar restrictions are put in place during the scheduled date range, we will extend the closing date to compensate.
It is a GPS punching event using MapRun (like our Street Series and COVID-era JOG activities).
The following events will be taking place during the time the SEGOL courses are open.
We also have lots of permanent courses.

Registration & Start Times
All competitors must register for free on the SEGOL website by the closing date of the event.
You can start any time between the starting and closing date of the event. We would recommend that you avoid busy shopping times to help with social distancing (and potentially speed your run up).
Mixture of residential streets, central urban, and urban parkland - see course information for specifics on each course.
Leg covering not required. We advise you wear bright colours to be more easily seen by drivers.
The courses start and finish near the wonderful The Weir Cafe. The light meals and cakes are a favourite with runners after Parkrun or urban orienteering events.
All controls have been checked by at least two devices on different days. However, your device or the weather conditions or time of day might mean that a control doesn't register. If you know you're at the right place and have waited a couple of seconds for your GPS track to catch up with you, just move on. We will manually review every track and retrospectively award controls missed by the GPS.
See our guide to using MapRun.
This event does not count for national ranking. It is only marked as Regional to indicate that it is part of a Southern England league.
