If our juniors can emulate their 2019 feat of qualifying for the final, we should have much less trouble getting there this time- it's 90 minutes away for most, at Westonbirt Arboretum. And the qualifier is on QO turf!

To get an idea of what the Trophy is about, read on....

The YBT is an annual inter-club competition named after one of the most successful British orienteers. The local heat tends to occur at an event with a strong regional profile like a South West League event.

You can usually run your usual course, not the one prescribed by your age class.

2019- perhaps unsurprisingly given the distance involved, we weren't able to raise a full team to go to the final at Sandringham Estate, Norfolk.

2017- we ran local giants Bristol OK close, again at Savernake.

2016- we qualified for the final in Hertfordshire in July and our captain Chris Hasler drove everyone there in a minibus. Read more
