The LuxSUL is back! Starting on Tuesday 23 April.

 April 10th        LuxOC organisation       

Our Luxembourg Summer Urban League – LuxSUL – a series of seven early evening urban races, is back again for 2024!

The format will be pretty much the same as last summer’s LuxSULs – 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. Starts from 18.30 until 19.30, be back at the meeting point by 20.30.

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 or a park bench. Usually, 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 will be announced as the summer progresses. But mark your diaries – LuxSUL 2 is tentatively planned for the evening of Wednesday 15 May, either on a new map of Gasperich, or around the architectural treasures of Belair.

Full details for LuxSUL 1 are attached, 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.
