14 QO juniors put up a strong challenge on a sweltering Wavering Down
Our fixtures for the Autumn term's Junior Orienteering Group (JOG) are coming together featuring a great range of areas and new planners.
We would like to invite all club juniors to join the Quantock Orienteers Junior Squad at the Yvette Baker Trophy Heat on Sunday 8th May
One member is now in her third team t-shirt. Good job we've just put in an order to restock our supply!
Sheila Braine provided the usual JOG courses on Broomfield Hill in the three different formats. The Fox course was also available on the Sunday for those who were otherwise involved on the Saturday. The four courses can be found on the MapRun6 list and are open as Permanent Orienteering Courses for anyone who wishes to attempt them.
QO were represented at the Yvette Baker Final at Westonbirt last Sunday.
Because of the success of the Junior Section over the last few years the Club has been designated a ‘Large’ club and competed in the Major Trophy competition.
Seven of our Juniors made the journey to the Cotswolds to compete in the complex network of paths, rides, and public spaces.
A new way to explore the town between 16th June and 14th July 2021. Navigate to find the boxes and get your card 'punched'. See how far you can walk, cycle and run in just 4 weeks. There are great challenges to enjoy and prizes up for grabs.

QO Juniors entered a team of 12 juniors into the Preliminary Round of the Yvette Baker Trophy competition on Sunday at the Mike Nelson BOKTROT Regional Event in the Mendips. Their score of 878 points compared to the winners, Bristol Orienteering Klub, of 898 points reflect an excellent set of results in all the age groups. Many thanks to our Club Captain, Pete Shirvington for putting the team together and to the Juniors for their individual performances after such a long period without events.
If you are looking to skill up during Lockdown, why not do our JOG Planners Course? It will take you through everything needed to plan and to control a Hare, Squirrel, Badger, and Fox for one of our junior activities sessions. It is also a great introduction for those wanting to go on to plan for Category D events.
