Congratulations to the 5 Aire Juniors who competed over the weekend of 5/6 June in the Lake District. The areas of Summerhouse Knott and High Dam are physically and navigationally tough. Most of you will not have run in such hard areas or read such a complex map before. The events also attracted the best orienteers from GB as the races were selection races for international events. You should all be proud of your performance!
