Club Championships Results (inc handicaps) 


Congratulations to Ben Chesters; winner of the 2018 Club Championships. Ben secured maximum points, visiting all 30 controls and with almost a minute to spare. The handicap system appeared to work well, with a range of ages in the top 10 finishers. 

Many thanks to Tom Lillicrap for planning a great course; obviously judged just right! Thanks also to Guy Balmer for very efficient organisation, to Roger Green for leading the SI team, to Nicholas Maxwell for acting as Risk Assessor and to all helpers on the day.

The baton for planning next years championships has now been passed to Ben!

Explanation of colour courses

  • White are very easy with all controls on paths. They are mainly used by 6-10 year olds and family groups.
  • Yellow use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams. They are mainly used by under 12’s and family groups.
  • Orange progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.
  • Light Green are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and point features.
  • Green are used mostly by experienced under 18’s and adults wanting a short but challenging course with a very hard navigational difficulty.
  • Blue are a longer, more physically demanding course in comparison to the green. The distances are more varied between controls and the course attracts experienced orienteers.
  • Brown & Black are very physically demanding and have a very hard navigational difficulty. They are for experienced orienteers only.
  • Score means visiting as many controls as possible in any order in a specific time, like 45mins.
