Although these tips are aimed at young athletes in training programmes, many parts of the advice apply to us all.
Instead of trick or treating this evening, the Shaws and MacAlisters went night orienteering. It was a score course with a difference - each control site had a bag of goodies (the harder the control to find, the better the selection of chocolates and sweets). The first pair to reach each control got to collect the bag!
Its great that so many families are managing to get out and go orienteering, despite the recent weather.
This'll be an interesting season with all the Covid restrictions, but should still be fun.

Our club's junior section has become a bigger and ever more important part of the club over the years. This section summarises 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.
Our weekly JOG activities offer four courses. Unlike formal events, they are not colour-coded, instead being named after animals.
at JOG (Fox course)
The Fox course is a training exercise for seniors and juniors from those who are on the verge of trying Light Green at senior events and upwards. Depending on how much of a challenge you want to give your runners, there are all sorts of imaginative possibilities.
