Orienteering Run Quiz

An opportunity for light training in the few days before the big races.  Ask for the Orienteering Map at Registration. This map shows various landmarks and features around the Royal Victoria Dock area and further a field and some quiz questions on each feature. Run, jog or walk out to these in your own time, make a note of the answers to the quiz questions and then check the full answer list which will be posted up in the Novotel on Saturday.  It's just for fun (and exercise) but if you get all the answers right let us know.
