White Horse wonders

White Horse Green

Top results from EBOR event 24.4.16

Airienteers got three top spots on Sunday.

Jack Wood won the Brown course by 15 mins, Dave Murgatroyd the Blue and Tony Thornley the Green.

White Horse, near Thirsk, has a poor 'green' reputation but the orienteering was good. The map extract is from the Green course.

Mulgrave Masters

Peter Haines

Northern Champions!

Airienteers achieved some top results at the Northern Champs on Sunday. David Alcock (M40) and Peter Haines (M60) were both Northern champions.

The area, near Whitby, was rough and tough. You needed to be good at climbing steep slopes, sliding down mud banks and ploughing through undergrowth to win. Not to mention navigating and choosing good routes.

King of the W18s

Jk2016 Day 3 Long 1026 Version 2

Laura wins at JK

Laura King overcame a 4 min deficit to take the W18E title at the JK by a mere 7 seconds. Lucy Haines was third, just over a minute behind.

Laura's triumph comes on the back of some excellent runs this year. At Kilnsey, she was pretty consistent throughout whilst her nearest rival, Pippa Dakin, made a couple of errors in the middle of the course. Well done to Laura and Lucy.

Chris un-Burdened

Chris Burden Full

Classic orienteering at Holme Fell

Chris Burden's efforts in controlling the Lakeland event were repaid with a glorious day and superb orienteering. The rare challenge of having to interpret the brown lines on the map led to many mistakes. Parallel errors - mistaking one feature for another similar feature - were easily made. Clear attack points, augmented by good map reading and checking direction were the order of the day.
