If you have tried orienteering and want to be better, want to know what it is all about, love maps and working with them – or just want to run, come along to my coaching sessions on 5 and 26 November 2016.

Each activity will be made up of demonstrating orienteering techniques, trying them out and then applying them in two competition courses.

Please meet at 2.00pm at the Crucifix monument (just near the top end of the mini-golf course) in Valley Gardens, Harrogate. Cost £1.50. Each session will last about 90 minutes.

No specialist equipment is needed. Wear suitable footwear for running on rough ground and clothing appropriate to being outside whatever the weather – preferably clothes that you don’t mind getting muddy.

For further information, contact me, Richard Kirk, Coach, CLARO. 01423 879313  or


Update – Please Read

We have already received lots of orders for our new club jackets and are intending to send the order off next week so we have them for Christmas. This is now your last chance to order!
The jackets will be subsidised and the prices for the initial order are:

TRACE training jacket – Adult £15, Junior (U16) £10

RADIUS softshell jacket – Adult £40, Junior (U16) £35

There will be future orders, but prices may change as the club has to buy the jackets in Euros and there is considerable scope for exchange rate variation, so book early to avoid disappointment!

Full details are in the previous post together with a link to company’s sizing chart – essential reading as the jackets tend to come up small for the size!

Linda has sent out an e-mail to those people who have already ordered jackets to confirm sizes etc. If you have ordered a jacket and not received an email please let her know so she can check we have you on the list.

If you need any further info please drop Linda a line.
