Yvette Baker Trophy – great results!

Thu 20 May

A huge, big thank you to 13 Aire juniors who ran for the club at the Yvette Baker heat at Middleton Park. TEAM AIRE was:

Jack, Jake, Tom, Annie, Megan, Katie, James, Harry, Henry, Jack, Bethan, Charlie & Kate.

Although SYO (South Yorkshire) scored more points - 899, we had enough runners to score on each course meaning that we were only a few points behind- 861 despite their large turn out. That is a brilliant achievement when many of you have done so little orienteering for a year.

Highlights were Katie who finished smiling though dripping wet with rain and our youngest competitor Kate who persevered on a tricky yellow course in her smart new Aire top.

Here are the results

M Woods Photo O Course

Club Photo-O Champs, Middleton Woods


Fri 5 Mar

A SIX way tie.
Burden retains some crumbs of the Fat Rascal, but has to share the rest with Stemp, Williams, Jones and Parkers. A late entry from Steve Webb was the only all correct answer, but he loses a point for missing the deadline.

Many thanks to everyone who had a go at this.
Entries were very good - only a few errors to my surprise.
Trophies to be awarded at the next club get together, if Betty's allows.

The overall winners were the team of Andrew Stemp, Fay Walsh and Paul Pruzina who won the top virtual prize of an Isolation Cruise on the Marie Celeste.

David Bowman was top in the solo competitor category.

Ski photo-O on Ilkley Moor RESULTS!

Sat 6 Feb

Tie for top spot between David Williams, Peter Jones, Chris Burden and Christine Roberts. David and Peter got all the controls right, but lost marks for course drawing. The planner also allocated fairly random handicaps based on distance from the event.

Congrats to all the entrants. The Fat Rascal remains uneaten and will be decided by the Middleton Woods event.

New Maprun App Launched

Mon 1 Feb

Maprun have launched the latest version of their app Maprun6. It is a separate app rather than an update to MaprunF with which it can coexist.

We recommend downloading the new app and using it for all future Maprun outings.

One of the major changes is enhanced responsiveness to GPS and improved tracking. It also improves MaprunG (Garmin watch) practical usability.

Fuller release information and features and fixes details MapRun6 Summary

Links to the Apple and Google play downloads are provided on our Maprun page.
