The usual Parkrun hospitality of tea/coffee andgoodies are provided at the download room in the leisure centre.

The second course is an Orienteering sprint around Backburn Park vicinity. (Those who participate in the Parkrun may gain a slight advantage!) Starts from 11am.

And thirdly, a longer urban event around Limavady Town in which you write down answers to questions posed at control sites. (Low tech orienteering!)

You choose how many courses you wish to compete in. (If you are under 16 you must be accompanied by an adult on the long course).
