Events this coming weekend

These are the events this coming weekend ending the 4th of December.

Fancy trying some Sprint-O.  UCDO are running a sprint event on Saturday in Belfield Campus.  There are two courses on offer, a short and long.  Fast paced and exhilarating, sprint-O tests navigation and running in relatively short distances.  Sprint Orienteering is suitable both for beginners and the advanced orienteer.

Then on Sunday there there are two events around the country, one on the Curragh that also doubles up as the Irish Orienteering Student Championships and one in Ballyannon Wood in Cork.  Both events have courses suitable for beginners.  If you ask at registration someone will help you.
