It starts with a barcrawl through Broomhill and will end in Roar. It will be a brilliant night, so find your brightest and worst lycra (Cow on West Street is a prime location for finding cheap and bright lycra) and if you haven't already asked for a ticket then please reply to the email or post on the forum. Meeting time and place will be sent out Tuesday I imagine. It is going to be amaaazing!!
Thursday - 4.30 Sprint orienteering intervals, please print off your own map, www.shuoc.co.uk/sprintervals.html, we will meet outside the gates of Goodwin and then run to the start.
For the weekend, we will plan another run in the peaks, information about this will be sent out nearer the time so keep checking the forum if you're interested.
That's it for now! See you at Beerienteering :)

Last weekend was the British Uni's End of Winter Weekend (Website) held in beautiful Sheffield.
It started with a lovely long run out on Kinder Scout in the snow, 12km in 1hr 50. Tough going!
Then we all regrouped back in Sheffield and used the micro sprint map of Endcliffe Park for a bit of novel orienteering, much to the amusement of the other park's users.
On Sunday a depleted and hungover group travelled over to Wincobank for some top quality urban orienteering.
