Coming up – the 2023 LuxSUL series!
LuxSUL – the Luxembourg Summer Urban League!
Following on from the success of the 2020 and 2022 LuxNUL Night Urban League series, for 2023 LuxOC has decided to organise a series of daylight evening informal urban events over the coming summer.
The format will be pretty much the same as for the LuxNULs – two courses, both for adults, one of around 3km and the other around 5km. Distances are measured straight-line, so you will probably run or walk about 50% further. The shorter course in particular is very suitable for newcomers.
Timing will be done using LuxOC’s SPORTident electronic timing system – LuxOC owns a large stock of SI timing chips, which can readily be borrowed by participants who don’t own one themselves. There will be few or no facilities – each event will be run from a club member’s front garden, or from a parked car. Beer or soft drinks, or a nearby bar, afterwards. As with all LuxOC’s informal events, taking part is free – but please join LuxOC as a member (only EUR 15 a year) if you want to become a regular participant.
The scoring system will be based on your time behind the winner on your course, with the best four results out of seven to count. So if you can’t take part in all the events, you still have a chance to be well up the league table. Updated league positions will be posted on this website after each event in the series.
Dates and areas planned (so far) are as follows.
LuxSUL 1 – Thursday 20 April – Helmsange/ Walferdange
LuxSUL 2 – Thursday 4 May – Belair/ Merl
LuxSUL 3 – (provisional) Tuesday 16 May – probably Bonnevoie. A World Orienteering Day event.
LuxSUL 4 – Wednesday 7 June – Heisdorf/ Steinsel
LuxSUL 5 – Wednesday 21 June – Sandweiler (LuxOC members summer social evening)

LuxSUL 6 – (to be confirmed) Wednesday 6 September – Limpertsberg
LuxSUL 7 – (to be confirmed) Wednesday 20 September - Bertrange
Full details for LuxSUL 1 are now posted on this website, and for the subsequent events these will each be posted a week or two before the date planned.
As well as all LuxOC members, friends, guests, visitors to Luxembourg, and newcomers to orienteering will all be warmly welcome at every LuxSUL.
