Andrew hits the streets
With a step up in age class, Andrew Page found himself let out of the park and into the streets, where he managed to beat some experienced campaigners in an impressive run down in Poole
More post-run treats
This is getting into a habit...two weeks' running we've been spoiled rotten! Last week at the holiday park it was pasties and ice creams, this week it was complimentary cream teas and cakes. All those extra calories were well-earned, of course, after a run in the baking sun.
St Audries qualifier results
After a pregnant pause in announcing the results so large it would put most prime time TV game or talent shows to shame, we can finally, officially, without further ado, pronounce "...and the winner is..."
Score challenge then social
Twenty five members, some with headtorches others hoping to get back by nightfall, took part in part in our latest course with 'invisible controls'. Afterwards, excellent achievements during the JOG season just gone were recognised with awards presented by our club president.
Back in action
Strong easterly winds and snow was forecast so we were amazed that nearly 40 people turned up to run at Wind Down. Pete Shirvington planned some excellent courses on his first attempt as a JOG planner.
What a superb afternoon for a JOG, many other people thought that too! After a long period of wet and cold weather, it was wonderful to enjoy a bright and sunny event.
Snowdrops & mud
JOG at Fyne Court was not only well supported by families but also by a good number of adult runners. The venue is excellent with lots of interesting control sites, superb countryside and the chance of a hot chocolate at the cafe afterwards!
The tough get going
The weather forecast was right, there was a deluge of rain between 1 and 4pm but some sturdy JOGgers defied the elements and enjoyed Ian Purnell's well planned courses.
It was a dank and miserable afternoon but competitors returning from their runs had wide smiles and rosy cheeks! Some were experiencing urban orienteering for the second week in a row.
