Devon Orienteering


Devon Runners on the Yorkshire Dales

A small band of intrepid DEVON club members trekked to Yorkshire to compete in the British Long Distance Orienteering Championships, held on Arncliffe and Kilnsey North. Open, windswept dales interspersed with limestone pavements, gullies and drystone walls to catch the unsuspecting runner!

Which  way? The map extract shows a typical leg from the M50L course; the fastest split was 06:43 and the slowest 27:37! (See the map extract at the foot of this page). 

Neck and Neck! Former DEVON Juniors Harry McMurtrie (Oxford University & Devon) and Tom Snow (Sheffield University & Devon) battle it out on the M20 Elite Course.
