A pleasant dry at Middleton Park but a very poor turnout - apart from runners from other clubs - thank you all.
Let's have a better show at Meanwood Park on 19th November and at Temple Newsam on 26th November.

We were sixth. Many thanks to everyone who ran.
Especial congratulations to Laura King and Peter Haines who won their classes, Joe Woodley who was second in his and Lucy Haines and Evie Conway who were third in theirs. Fuller report to follow from the Captain. (Lost property: one flask, one fluorescent t-shirt and a pair of trainers - email David to claim.)
This last weekend the Junior Home Internationals took place in Northumberland, ably hosted by NATO. Three juniors from AIRE were selected to the England team: Evie Conway, Lucy Haines and Laura King. It was a hard fought competition but with lots of friendly rivalry and good fun between the athletes. All the youngsters ran hard and supported each other in competing for their home nations.
The new club O Tops have arrived and will be ready to collect at the Compass Sport Cup Final this weekend or the Esholt Olite on the 22nd. Jack will be e-mailing details of how to pay for your order.
25% of the women's team at the Junior Home Internationals in Northumberland this weekend are athletes from Airienteers! Good luck to Evie, Laura and Lucy orienteering for England in the individual and relay competitions, woo hoo!
Evie Conway achieved selection for the second year 14s tour based at Lagganlia Outdoor Centre near Aviemore in the summer. Read her account of her orienteering training, but also the fun and games during the week's tour, on the YHOA website
Over 20 AIRE members enjoyed a day of coaching in tricky Lakes woodland followed by a moorland event. The weather was kind and the coaching excellent.
