Competition Area:
The sprint race will be held at Brunel University London, located on the outskirts of Uxbridge, North West London and close to the junction of the M25 and M40. Brunel is a compact urban campus, featuring striking 1960s architecture together with extensive modern additions. Consisting mostly of hard surfaces with some grassed areas, it offers typical campus style navigational challenges of detailed map reading and rapid decision making. The area is new to orienteering and promises to offer an excellent start to the JK weekend

On campus

The London Low Emissions Zone (LEZ)
Competitors and traders travelling to the event in larger vehicles (including some large minibuses and motorhomes) should be aware that Brunel University lies within the London Low Emissions Zone (LEZ). To see if your vehicle is subject to the LEZ and find a map of the zone use this link

The LEZ operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year, including weekends and public and Bank Holidays and will therefore be in force on the day of the event. The single day charge is £100. Note that the LEZ is different to the central London Congestion Charge zone.

The LEZ covers most of Greater London. All roads within Greater London, those at Heathrow and parts of the M1 and M4 are included. The M25 is not included. Brunel is very close to the edge of the LEZ but we have been unable to find suitable alternative parking arrangements. Therefore, if your vehicle is impacted by the LEZ we recommend that you share a lift or use public transport for this race.

Start times

Will be between 1200 and 1600
