JK2015 Club report

Alastair on day2,

The Club had a very good turn out for the JK2015, which was held in the Lake District over the Easter holidays. Over the four days of competition there were a few thousand photographs taken by official photographers. From these I have managed to extract quite a number of our Club members in action, which are shown below.

What is orienteering

Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport that exercises both the mind and the body. The aim is to navigate in sequence between control points marked on a unique orienteering map and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace.
