Meet at

Rue Léon Hengen, at the corner of the road at the south end of the European School bus stops. If it’s nice weather, walk 100 metres east to the Kirchberg “Amphitheatre” in the park. Look for the Luxembourg OC beach flag.

Public transport – tram to the d’Coque stop. Then walk west to the rue Erasmus cross-roads, turn right into rue Erasmus, and right again at the first roundabout, turning into rue Léon Hengen. Total walking distance about 500 metres.

Parking – on the south side of boulevard JFK? The d’Coque car park adjacent to the meeting point is very expensive!

Facilities None at all. The event will be outdoors, based on a small folding table, or a car if it is raining. Someone will be there all the time, so it is safe to leave bags.
Event times Start from about 10.00 until 11.15 or so. Controls will be removed from 12.15 – please report back to the meeting point by then.
Entries Just turn up on the morning, we will enter your details into the timing system. No fee.
Start point Start and finish will both be within 100 metres of the meeting point.
Format This morning event is planned mainly for families with children.
Three courses
  • Rabbit about 2.5 km – sprint orienteering, for adults and older children
  • Squirrel 1 just over 1.0 km – a very easy course for children
  • Squirrel 2 just over 1.0 km – for those who want another go!
Very little climb on any course. Straight line distances given – optimum routes on the Rabbit course are a bit longer.
Flags are 15cm kites. Courses will be timed using the SPORTident (SIAC enabled) system. Bring your own SI “dibber” if you have one, but if not, you are very welcome to borrow one of the Club’s. Results will not be posted on the web afterwards.
Map 1:4,000 ISSproM 2019, by Julien Gaffuri, updated June 2022 by Jonas Wolff. Laser-printed on A4 waterproof paper.
Terrain Public park, around the d’Coque building, and across part of the University Kirchberg campus. Also, one or two woodland sections, one part quite steep and with thorny bushes.
Safety Everyone takes part entirely at their own risk. The Rabbit course crosses a fairly busy road twice. Please take great care here, using the pedestrian crossings shown on the map as crossing points. The Squirrel courses do not cross any roads, and so are safe for unaccompanied children.
