There will be a coaching for adults and juniors on contour interpretation at Allestree Park on Saturday March 2nd, 10:30–3pm. East Midlands Junior Squad coaches Ann-Marie Duckworth (DVO) and Andy Simpson (LEI) will provide exercises from Orange to Green standard (improver to technical). You don’t need to be a squad member to come along, but please do reserve a space as places are limited.
We have chosen Allestree Park because some of the features (big re-entrants, contour details and mixed woodland with parkland) are similar to the competition areas for the big competitions at the JK2024 on Beaudesert and the Midland Championships at Sandringham. But the skills you will learn will be useful for running in hilly terrain anywhere! (And practice at our Shipley Park event the following day.)
We provide the maps and compasses. Bring a packed lunch. Small fee, for further details or to reserve a place please email Jane Burgess.
