The league has been updated following the recent Wheathill event on 10th April. As a result the leading positions have changed on three out of the six courses, showing how tight the competition is. Many congratulations to Tom Perry, M12 who cannot be caught on the Orange course (although note that certificates are awarded for first male and first female on each course.)
The final League event of the season is at Braunton Burrows on Sunday 19th June - an opportunity to run on some great orienteering terrain. Make sure you have the date in your calendar! See: Events
