New Lockdown Challenge

Lejog Route

Can the club run Land's End to John O'Groats?

This Lockdown, QO is taking on a challenge. As a club, we want to run Land’s End to John O’Groats. Well, virtually, anyway. We’ll add up all your runs during daily exercise, be that a visit to a permanent orienteering course in your local area, a quick trip to the shops and back, or laps of your garden.

JOG Spring 2021

Jog Flag

As we are now in Lockdown, we are unable to arrange events. However, we are able to provide additional permanent orienteering courses. We'll be providing them in the normal JOG courses - Hare, Squirrel, Badger, and Fox. As they become available, they will appear on our POC page.

Uncrossable Boundaries

Vaulting a Fence

The recent Longrun JOG threw up a point about uncrossable boundaries. As so many were caught out by this, and earned a time penalty as a result, I thought it would be sensible to highlight this. In a more serious competition, disqualification would be the likely result of an infringment.
