Chasers have 2 Midland Champions after today’s excellent race at Bentley Woods near Atherstone. Tough courses in wonderful spring sunshine saw some great performances, with wins by both Claire Bushnell (W55) and Hazel Waters (W65). Congratulations both!
Our long running spring and summer series of runs, training and events including the coveted domination series competition kicks off on Tuesday 28th March and runs right through to September.
We are having a few land permissions challenges this summer however the club captain and permissions secretary are working hard to bring you a high quality series as normal. Check the website regularly for the latest updates.(perhaps put a link to the club diary in your outlook, apple or google calendar)
On Tuesdays there will be coaching and instruction available if you want it, just courses if you want to walk or run around in the summer sunshine enjoying Cannock Chase at its best.
Thursdays brings mixed ability trail running (or just a walk) on Cannock Chase in groups. We then meet at the Stags Leap in Rugeley for a meal and social (from 8pm)

Special mention should also go to Jonathan Howell who scored 98 points on the Green Men but can’t be counted in the final score as we had 2 people ahead of him on the same course.
Total score was 1272, just 2 points ahead of POTOC, and enough to take the win, with Wrekin in 3rd place on 1256 points.

NB: Due to heavy rain, we have had to hire matting to protect the grass and allow you to park more safely – hence the car park fee is now £2.
Huge thanks to Sarah Dredge for again organising the club dinner at Brocton Golf Club. An excellent meal was followed by the annual prize giving and an after dinner speech by Ian from Ultrasport. Now we all know how we should be looking after our O-shoes…..!
Final details are now available for the colour coded race at Badgerslade on Sunday 5th Feb. Entry on the day for all courses – beginners through to experienced orienteers all welcome.
