President's Challenge

Eight of our Longrun Parkrunners

Several PB's at Parkrun

Was it the lure of the wine that did it? About 10 turned up for our President's Challenge, with several registering PB's (personal bests). All the more amazing when you consider our contestants between them had hundreds of Parkruns under their belts.

Four Days of Limburg

Kovz

Dutch/Belgian tournament

Seasoned O travellers Andy Rimes and Rosie Wych saught out fresh terrain in the Low Countries...and of course the chance to add another souvenir O top to their collections.

Amazingly, the intriguing series of inland dune areas over there might not be used again - Andy and Rosie report.

Indoor O

Martin, Jacob and Pete, Bradford Grammar School

Bradford Grammar School

A format that's big in Scandanavia and most obviously of use when there's a whiteout in the forests! Pete and Jacob Shirvington and Martin Lewis tried it out during their grand O tour of Yorkshire. Pete reports.

Race the Castles

Spot the castle! Knaresborough

Yorkshire

Three QO, Martin Lewis plus Pete and Jacob Shirvington enjoyed a grand tour of Yorkshire in mid August. A bit of poetic licence is being applied to the series name by the organisers though on Wednesday evening there actually was a race round a castle!

Slovenian 5 days

Stonah, Day 4 of Slovenia, 2019

Andy Rimes and Rosie Wych coped well with some highly technical orienteering in the Julian Alps of Slovenia at the end of July. An abundance of contour and rock features and general absence of paths or other line features made for a tough challenge.
