Urban Event (SEOUL)

Regional level event

What does this mean?

Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Training events are non competitive and used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships. Virtual events are where there are no physical controls being used. Your presence at a control is registered using an App on your mobile phone, normally the free MapRun6 App.

Terrain type: Parkland & Heathland & Urban

Overview

The market town and World Heritage Site of Tavistock is on the western edge of Dartmoor. Our urban event will be based at the Community Football Club on the southern side of the town centre. Courses will explore the park and old town centre. Longer courses will visit semi-moorland. The junior courses avoid roads, except that course 6 will have a manned crossing of a minor road that could be busy on the day.

Come and enjoy the delights (and numerous tea rooms!) of this popular and historic Devonshire town. No muddy car parks for a change!

Map / Terrain

Mapped area includes newly mapped streets to the east of the town. Will be using area mostly to the east of the river to give different courses to those for the Tamar Triple in May 2022. Mostly urban running with some parkland, which could be wet and therefore slippery.

Expect some hills on most courses, plus a little open moorland for the longer courses. Road shoes should be adequate unless weather has been wet prior to event.
