It was the first time we have had a “long leg” map memory for the Fox course and it proved quite challenging! As well as a lot of our regular JOGgers we welcomed three new families along to enjoy Chris Hasler’s courses.
Running until early December, our Autumn season has one event every weekend. Terrain varies from open hill top and woods to parkland or college campus. All are welcome.
Take our survey now
The club has developed a scheme designed to help and encourage those looking to improve and / or gain confidence. But for it to work properly, we need more potential matches. All welcome regardless of age or experience.
Will we? Won’t we have JOG? In the end we made the right choice, it was SO windy BUT dry and warm, a wonderful time to be on Lydeard Hill and plenty of people came along.
Our junior section has become a bigger an ever more important part of the club over the years. What schemes and resources are available to juniors?
Junior Orienteering Group
Our Junior Orienteering Group (JOG) runs during term-times holding low-key weekly events aimed at juniors, families and all those looking to improve or to train.
Family friendly Fyne Court was the scene for the third JOG of the season, in warm and sunny weather. Karen Lewis was one of several who must have thought they knew the area well - until they tried Steve Robertson's 'Fox' training exercise.
...I mean The Spinney
Unremitting rain was forecast and that’s what we got for our first event at The Spinney, Kingston St. Mary.
The new season has really got going, with three events in the region this weekend plus the London City race, where Andrew Page made the junior men's podium. Meanwhile, M80 Bill Vigar took 3rd place in Devon OC's club champs, up on Dartmoor.
