GLOSS (Greater London Orienteering Summer Series – formerly ‘Frolics’) is an annual handicap competition between SE Orienteering Clubs in which all club members run the same course and the handicapping system means that it is very unlikely that the fastest runner will win!

If you have not tried orienteering before please come along and try one of the courses for newcomers and younger members.
