Ipswich-O 2022: Christchurch Park

This is the first of our new series of drop-in sessions designed for families, beginners & improvers - anyone who enjoys exploring the outdoors with a map! Meet us at our venue at any time between 13:00 & 15:00 & we'll help you choose a suitable course, explain what to do & set you off. Running is fun but not compulsory - walking is fine - and it's also OK to take part as a small group or individually!

Ipswich-O 2022: Christchurch Park

You'll have a choice of 3 different courses, from 1 to 3Km in length. The shortest courses will be fairly easy to find your way around while the longer courses are also more tricky to give you a bit more of a challenge. The map you'll be using will be a large-scale, high quality one, updated especially for the event. The course will be shown on it - you'll need to find your way to each of the checkpoints marked, & in the correct order - & all you have to do is to decide the best route to take you from point to point. The course will be timed - we'll lend you an ECard which will be time-stamped at each checkpoint - it'll be up to you to decide whether to make a race of it or to just explore at a leisurely pace.

Once you reach the Finish your result will be shown on a special Ipswich-O 2022 Passport - this will be your record card which lasts for all 4 events, & will also give you free entry into our Summer Series events at Orwell Country Park, Clare & Needham Lake.

The meeting point for this first event in Christchurch Park will be towards the northern end of the park, next to the shelter near the Westerfield Road entrance - just look out for the SuffOC sign!

The entry fees are £5 for a family or an individual adult, £1 for a junior who is confident enough to "Go-it-alone".

We'd like to thank Sport England for sponsoring this series of events & Ipswich Borough Council for authorising the use of the park.
