British Orienteering Long Distance Championships 2016

Kate O'Sullivan preparing for the British Champs,

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!!

MWOC tent at Kilnsey JK 2016 - Welsh penguin huddl,

Well done to all the members of MWOC who travelled to Yorkshire to compete at the JK over the Easter weekend, which is the largest annual orienteering event held in the UK. Day one was a sprint event held at Leeds University, day two and day three were cross country events with the times added up over the two days, held at Wass Forest in the North Yorkshire Moors and Kilnsey in the Yorkshire Dales, with the relay being held at Storthes Hall close to Huddersfield.  The heavy hail, sleet and snow on the exposed Kilnsey was an added challenge for anyone running later in the day – well done to all and thanks to the MWOC tent for providing much needed shelter! The penguin huddle  of a record number of Welsh orienteers in a tent helped provide added warmth! Notable results from MWOC members were as follows -  Apologies if I have left anyone out

W12 4th Hannah Thomas – by 19 seconds!
