GLOSS race series Greater London Orienteering Summer Series

1st Feb 22

The GLOSS London Bus Trophy
The GLOSS London Bus Trophy

GLOSS is a series of races run by the clubs in and around London. There are two
courses: the GLOSS course which is about 3½ to 4½ km (with optional extension to
around 6 km) and is of moderate navigational difficulty and a 'Yellow' course which is
about 2km with easier navigation, but which doesn't score for the GLOSS trophy.


The GLOSS trophy scoring is calculated based on the best six runners from all the competing clubs, with individual ranking being worked out depending on how well each person performs against their BOF ranking.


Both courses are traditional line courses, so navigate between control points - you decide the best route in order to complete the course in the quickest time. Beginners welcome.  If you don't have a BOF ranking, but complete the course, you are given a default score, whatever time you complete in.


HAVOC are the defending GLOSS champions, having won the trophy for the last four runnings (2017, 2018, 2019, 2021).

Draft fixtures for 2022 are:
