Haldon NIght Orienteering 11th January 2020

2nd Report - from Sarah Clough

Night orienteering: this sounded like an exciting concept. A friend of mine who orienteers in Yorkshire has been night orienteering a few times, but they were urban events. This was in Haldon Forest, not somewhere I have ever explored, but it certainly sounded pretty hardcore by comparison.

First impressions from one competitor!

This was my first experience of night orienteering and one that will stay with me forever. I’m an experienced novice, capable of completing green but frequently make the same mistakes: running too far and consequently over shooting, this I attribute to my ultra-running background and lack of self-discipline whilst orienteering.

Devon League Event 5: Woodbury Common, Blue Course. Sunday 5th Jan 2020.

Report from one participant

I really enjoyed the orienteering I did last season so was keen to throw myself into it this season, but every event so far has clashed with an other significant annual event in my calendar, not anything I could escape from. So league event 5 was the first one I could make and I was pretty rusty, so I revised control symbols in the car with my friend Bill who I had brought along.
