Long Leg Madness

Compass Cup Heat - Bampton Common

Long leg madness...

Mon 18 Mar

Well done to all Airienteers who represented the club on Sunday. Great effort particularly from the Juniors to travel all that way and help the club. We were blessed with amazing conditions, compared with the forecast 24hrs before. Many thanks to Border Liners for a well run enjoyable event. Great new area and hopefully we will get a chance to race there again in the future.

It was very close, unratified results are WCOC 2450 AIRE 2418 MDOC 1836 LOC 1435; unfortunately too many Airienteers lost the plot on the long leg (3 out 3 in our car) . I'm sure this will be fully dissected and analysed in the next Aire Affairs. We live and learn, next topic for AIRE training: How to survive and conquer 'long legs'?

Runs of the day go to: Tony Thonley (1st VSG) who used all his nous to beat the gorse bushes and younger whipets; Evie Conway (1st SG) who won by exactly 1 minute over WCOC and Alasdair McLeod (1st Br) who won by 1 second!

1973

45 year old knowledge pays off

Mon 26 Nov

Ilkley’s Tony Thornley and Peter Haines rolled back the years on Saturday. At the Southern Night Orienteering Champs near Guildford Tony won his age class by a clear 8 minutes whilst Peter came third in his class. The terrain was soft and brackeny southern common, very different from the tough hills and heather in Yorkshire.

The Southern Championships the following day were held at the beautiful Devil’s Punchbowl near Hindhead. Tony last ran here in an international 45 years ago! He improved on his twelfth place in 1973 to win his class by a minute. His course was tricky and challenging, with some steep climbs and, in places, some unforgiving undergrowth.

Collapsed Wall

Dales Weekend

Mon 18 Sep

A great weekend's competition. Thanks to all helpers. And all participants except the one (or more?) who did the damage shown and failed to report it. Cost us to repair it, and unknown reputational cost with farmers and landowner.

Ilkley Moor: long legs and mud

Mon 6 Mar

Sunday presented a few challenges: lunchtime drizzle=mud; route to the far start long and complex.

But not as long and complex as the courses.
AIRE runners who overcame all this were led by club sec David Alcock (1st Brown) and Jack Cooper (2nd Blue).
Over 30 AIRE helpers made the event possible - many thanks to all of you.
