Chasers at the Yvette Baker Qualifier

A group of our juniors ranging from our M/W10s to our M18 traveled over to Calke Park in the east midlands to race at the Yvette Baker Qualifier. The Yvette Baker competition is held every year and every club in the country brings together as many juniors as possible to race for the trophy. Our Chasers juniors had some incredible runs and we managed to score more points than the other teams in the qualifier and we got through to the final! Unfortunately the final is being held too far away so we will not be going but a massive well done to the team for smashing the competition!

After everyone had finished their courses we had a big group BBQ and played games like rounders and splat. Everyone had a fab time and we are definitely looking forward to next year’s qualifier!

Staffordshire & Stoke Schools Champs

On Thursday 28th March some of our juniors from WHS competed in the Staffordshire and Stoke Schools Orienteering Championships. This was held at Forest Park in Hanley and it was a beautiful hot sunny day (a big contrast to last year!). Each of our WHS juniors did a fantastic job and we had many medalists so well done to everyone who competed. A big thank you to the WHS PE staff for making it possible. (written by Iona W)

Ex-Chaser Matt Crane at the World Champs

One of Chasers’ home grown juniors was competing at the World Orienteering Champs in Estonia last week.  Bob Dredge caught up with Matt Crane, who now lives in, and represents, Australia. Matt raced the (brutal) long and middle races. He said he really enjoyed it and being back at WOC.  Matt’s wife Grace is expecting their second child shortly, they are all well and send their best to all Chasers.  Full results of WOC 2017 can be found here.  A good summary, maps and lots of photos of the week’s racing can be found at
