Local level event

Explanation of Event levels

  • Training events are non competitive events used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport.
  • Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Most clubs run some 'mini series' throughout the year as local mid week events.
  • Regional events attract participants from around the local Region.
  • National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away,
  • Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships or the annual JK competition.



Excellent turn out for Alkincoats Park.

Katy Thompson scooped all 14 controls on the MIDI course but this time finished in under 45 minutes. She leads the MIDI league with one event still to go.

Competition is tight at the top in the MAXI League. Next week at Tockholes (60 mins time limit) will determine the outright league winner with only the best 3 of 4 to count. There could be radical changes as those who have only run twice so far can catch the leaders who will drop their lowest score. Anyone down to 8th in the table could, mathmatically, be the outright league champion next week.

Whether you are in the league or just want a run out, next week will be the best event in this years league. Tockholes is 100% mixed woodland with orienteering of the highest quality. Unlike Alkincoats the seasonal undergrowth is easily run through with (almost) no brambles or tangles anywhere.
