Junior Training Camp, Yorkshire

[nggallery id=26]

A small group of juniors headed up to Kilnsey & Harden Moors for 2 days of training fun & games. They worked hard on terrain running, picking lines & zooming around, as well as thinking about contours & attack points.
Despite a very thundery hailstorm interrupting training for over an hour, progress has been made, & a good time was had by all.
Thank you to all the grown-ups who enabled the camp to happen.


3 Jours de Paques

dsc_0070While a number of Chasers headed north to Scotland to compete in JK over the Easter weekend, others headed south, crossing the Channel & spending the weekend on the Ile d’Oleron on the west coast of France.

The 3 days of orienteering here comprised a sprint, long & middle race in forested sand dunes.

The juniors did us proud, coming back with a sackful of trophies: Holly C won D10 in the sprint & middle race, Holly S was second in all 3 races & Heather had a victory in the sprint race & 2 seconds in the middle & classic races.

The seniors had mixed results, but a great experience, and a good time was had by all.

British Middle Champs – York

The fog cleared and clear blue skies made for a fantastic Middle Champs on Strenshall Common.  There were some great performances by Chasers.  Standing on the podium for the 2nd day running was Holly Craig, 3rd in W10 and also Cath Williams, 3rd in W35. Well done to both of them for excellent performances. Allan Williams also put in a solid performance by taking 10th place on M40.
