Alice Leake wins Bronze at WOC2022!

Successful World Champs for GB

Thu 30 Jun

A massive congratulations to Alice Leake who has won the Bronze Medal in the World Championships Individual Sprint today in Vejle, Denmark. A very well deserved result!

Megan Carter-Davies (recent British Sprints Champion at Leeds University) won the race to become the first British world individual champion since 2003.

This capped a successful end for GB at WOC2022, with Megan also winning a silver medal in the Knock-out sprint and being part of a silver medal winning sprint relay team with Charlotte Ward (HALO), Kris Jones and Ralph Street, amongst a number of other impressive performances from the whole GB team - well done to them all from AIRE.

Fast and Glorious Airienteers!

Mon 20 Jun

Saturday dawned for the relays. Yours truly headed out with some trepidation. I wouldn’t say I was press-ganged into entering but let’s say I didn’t volunteer and the two other people the club captain asked to complete the team were unavailable! AIRE had a good complement of teams – 11 altogether. Our club captain Steve Webb did a sterling job filling up gaps in some and on the day rallying as many of us round for a team photo (a bit like herding cats I think) but he managed to get most of us.

Our results were:

Young Junior (12-): 5th was Paddington BeAIRE – Charlie Alcock, Kate Parkinson, Charlotte Beavers

Junior (16-): 9th was bAIRE necessities – Katie Buckley, Henry Stitson, Megan Robinson

10th was Rupert bAIRE – James Woodham, Annie Faulkner, Joseph Dawson

Vets (40+) 5th was Commission AIRE – Rob Gatenby, Jo Buckley, Dave Alcock

10th was VoltAIRE – David Bowman, Natasha Conway, Richard Foster

Supervets (55+) 13TH was BelAIRE – Greg Hull, Lindsey King, Chris Penny

Ultravets (65+) 5th was LassezfAIRE – Tony Carlyle, Liz Carter, Peter Jones.

British Sprints walking on Aire!

Wed 15 Jun

A big thank you to all involved in the British Sprints on Sunday. A good day was had by all, the weather was kind and we had a good turnout. Special thanks go to the planners, Richard Foster, David Bowman and David Williams. The organisers Chris Burden and Graham Stuart supported by Tony Thornley, not forgetting the controllers, Ranald Macdonald and Ian Marshall and the Start leaders Tony Carlyle and Martyn Broadest. Thanks also to EBOR who lent us additional SI kit for the event. Also a big shout out to all the volunteers who gave their time to make the event a success. Some of whom also helped out on the Saturday Relays as well. Without the support of all of you we would not be able to put on quality events – or any events for that matter.

Again - many thanks to all
