British Orienteering Champs

Thanks to all Claros who helped at the British Champs, the team here was the second start shift on Sunday after closing the starts.

As well as helping, some great competition results:   with Gold medals, Bronze medals and a couple of UK Orienteering League podiums to boot… Congratulations to all and especially to Matthew Rochester, Lois Parker (and Matthew Hall), Quentin Harding, Matthew Rochester (again), Will Drewe and Ruth Ker.

Dob Park technical challenge – what’s next?

We were blessed with cool but dry conditions on Sunday. Dob Park wood was the driest we have ever used it, along with the vegetation still being down, great conditions. Favourable comments received thanks, one of which from a Green course competitor “sustained technical difficulty which we rarely see around here”. We had more competitors than ever attended at Dob Park, maybe we underestimated the attraction of the Snowden Crags extension, but in any case our apologies to those who had to wait for recycled maps.
Coming soon:
