Ipswich-O 2022: Christchurch Park (June event)

This is the third event in our new series of drop-in sessions designed for families, beginners & improvers - anyone who enjoys exploring the outdoors with a map! It's once again being held in Christchurch Park, but there'll be a different starting point and brand new courses! 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 (June event)

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 Clare & Needham Lake (plus, of course, Orwell Country Park, if you obtain your passport at one of our May events).

The meeting point for this event in Christchurch Park will be towards the southern end of the park, alongside the path that leads to the round pond – in between the mansion and the war memorial - 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.
