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.
Flurry Grierson M18E
Congratulations! Flurry Grierson won the M18E class at the British Sprint Champs at Loughborough University on 14th September and came 2nd in the British Middle Champs on Sunday15th September in the Peak District. Congratulations also to Ben Perry, M12 who came 2nd in the British Middle Champs. (Photograph taken at the Scottish 6 Days).
