Luxembourg City Race on Sunday 5 November 2017 - save the date!

Good news - the Luxembourg Ville authorities have confirmed that LuxOC can organise our first City Race - and the date set is Sunday 5 November.

Over the summer we will be updating and slightly extending Ondra Pijak's existing urban orienteering map of the Vieille Ville, the Grund and the Petrusse. Ondra Kotecky and Jevgeny Sproge are our course planners - we will be offering a Middle Distance race, with all the classes for competitition that the Euro City tour offers, right up to Mens' and Women's Ultra-Vets, for over 65's.

David Roach is the event organiser. He hopes that as many club members as possible will be available on the day to help make the race happen, and allow "job-sharing" so that all club members can run, too.

Watch out for advertisements for the City Race, and more information, over the summer. This will be LuxOC's first effort at organising an event open to all orienteers - let's hope it will be a big success. We certainly have one of the most interesting and challenging areas for urban orienteering in Europe - well worth coming some distance for! Here's a preview.
