Kate O'Sullivan preparing for the British Champs,

British Orienteering Long Distance Championships 2016

MWOC members enjoyed great weather at the British Orienteering Long Distance Championships on Saturday 30th April at Brown Clee Hill in Shropshire. The terrain was very challenging with tricky navigation through the complex former mining areas and tough running through the rough marshy areas. Great panoramic views if you had time to enjoy them! Thanks for the great welsh atmosphere around the SWOC tent cheering in the welsh runners. Congratulations to Ben Mitchell from SBOC on coming 2nd in M21E and Claire Dallimore coming 3rd in W21E – great to see Wales performing so well!!
