Kippax Urban Plus Race

Level of event: Regional
Kippax Final Details
An unusual and challenging mix of typical urban orienteering and a small wooded former mining area with interesting contour detail. Well worth a visit.
A Yorkshire Urban League Event
The finish control on the three shorter courses showed a time less than the time shown on the last control. Each competitors finishing time was adjusted. The difference in time between their final control and the finish control was added onto their final control time to get their finish time.
