MapRun League

We are halfway through week 3 of our MapRun League. The League is designed to give us regular opportunities to go orienteering (in particular when permission to use our areas is difficult to come by). 

The top 10 results are below with full results here. Well done to Nick Jarvis for his two wins from two and to Karen French for being the top female (also consistent with two top 10 places). 38 different people have taken part so far and we're averaging 30 people per week. 

Name Total 1 2
Nick Jarvis 100 50🥇 50🥇
David Currie 98 49🥈 49🥈
Eoghan Wiles 95 48🥉 47

All to play for with our Lordswood event at the moment. Hopefully, this means lots of you will be out Thursday for a social O evening (start sometime between 6 and 7pm). Or remember you have until Sunday evening to score! 

The more events you do, the better chance of a good result there is! And the more fun you'll have! 

If you haven't yet given MapRun a go, more info is available here.

SLOW Winterfold Event on 9th May

The SLOW event on Winterfold was originally scheduled for November but was postponed due to Lockdown 2. Rearranging it for Sunday 9th May has involved completely new car parking arrangements as well as working around a film shoot, so they have only been able to confirm that they can go ahead relatively late in the day – hence their request that we publicise the event to our members.

Winterfold is an outstanding area that has been used for the JK, British Championships and a World Cup race and will be near its very best at the beginning of May. The OK Nuts Trophy event will offer a full range of course from White to Black and has car parking in a field close to the forest.

Further information can be found here. Entries open on Tuesday.
