I big thank you to all those who took part in yesterday's junior event at Nunroyd Park.
Many of you completed all three courses and still had the energy to try the 'challenge' course.
We look forward to seeing you again at Bowling Park (Sat 8th June) and at Riverside Gardens (Sat 22nd June).
Unfortunately, following the download/printer failure it has not been possible to compile any accurate results for yesterday's event. I have done my best to match names to times, but please accept my apologises for any errors
I will try to ensure this problem will not occur again at either of the remaining junior events.

Evie Conway wins W18 Elite
Easter weekend saw over 30 club members running at the annual JK Orienteering Festival. The event consisted of a sprint race at Aldershot Garrison, followed by middle and long distance individual races at Windmill Hill and Cold Ash respectively and the final race being a relay at Minley.
There were some great results for Aire members over the weekend, with star performance being Evie Conway who won W18E overall with two 2nd place finishes on the day in both the middle and long.
Peter Haines was second overall in M65 but first Brit (beaten by former World Champs medallist Sigurd Daehli of Norway) with 3rd and 2nd places on the days....
YHOA Superleague Event April 28th - Mausoleum Woods
The introduction of the Yvette Baker Shield for smaller clubs gives all our Juniors a chance to represent AIRE at this Regional Event!
The area is ideal for Juniors with numerous paths and rides, little undergrowth and very little public access. It has been used previously for the YBT final.
There is plenty of room for Club Tents and Banners adjacent to the finish.
