Settle Event

Giggleswick praise

Sat 25 Jun

Lots of positive comments about Leon Foster's urban courses at Giggleswick. A lovely morning and interesting orienteering throughout. Yet again, I screwed up at the end in the complex school buildings. Photo shows Richard discussing his superb routes with Leon. Many thanks to all who helped.

Peter Haines

CSC @ Timble

Bad news: pipped at the post; good news…..

Sun 5 Jun

Despite a top turnout, AIRE were just beaten by SYO in the CSC qualifying round at Timble. We scored 2368 against SYO's 2425. We were well clear of WCOC, CLOK and EBOR. Peter H was our only course winner, but we had many top tens. We will probably make the final….

Tue 26 Apr

Airienteers got three top spots on Sunday.

Jack Wood won the Brown course by 15 mins, Dave Murgatroyd the Blue and Tony Thornley the Green.

White Horse, near Thirsk, has a poor 'green' reputation but the orienteering was good. The map extract is from the Green course.

Jk2016 Day 3 Long

King of the W18s

Laura wins at JK

Tue 12 Apr

Laura King overcame a 4 min deficit to take the W18E title at the JK by a mere 7 seconds. Lucy Haines was third, just over a minute behind.

Laura's triumph comes on the back of some excellent runs this year. At Kilnsey, she was pretty consistent throughout whilst her nearest rival, Pippa Dakin, made a couple of errors in the middle of the course. Well done to Laura and Lucy.

Classic orienteering at Holme Fell

Fri 8 Apr

Chris Burden's efforts in controlling the Lakeland event were repaid with a glorious day and superb orienteering. The rare challenge of having to interpret the brown lines on the map led to many mistakes. Parallel errors - mistaking one feature for another similar feature - were easily made. Clear attack points, augmented by good map reading and checking direction were the order of the day.

Andrew Kelly Running

Kelly courses praised

Fri 1 Apr

Andrew Kelly's hard work planning Kilnsey Day 3 courses paid off. Despite the extremes of the weather, competitors were complimentary about the challenge of the open limestone terrain. Most found it a good contrast to the rough Wass forest on Day 2.

Thanks also to all the AIRE members who helped to make the JK a success. Especially on Day 3 the stiles team, and the gallant band who collected controls in torrential hail at the end of the day. We don't have to do it again for another ten years or so!
