Your Club needs youfor the CompassSport Trophy
Sunday 15th March at Fixby & Bradley Woods near Huddersfield
This year’s qualifying heat is being hosted by East Pennine Orienteering Club (EPOC). We are classed as a small club therefore we enter the Compass Sport Trophy. (The Compass Sport Cup is for large clubs) both competitions do the same courses which are listed below.
We need as many club members as possible to come and run on the day to assist PFO getting through to the Final.
We are up against some strong competition this year (CLARO, NN, NATO, LOG, HALO, SELOC, NOC and EPOC). The 1st and 2nd placed teams in this heat qualifies for the Final which takes place near Sutton Coldfield later in the year.
The courses are very specific on ages. If you wish, you may run up an age group, but will be non-competitive if you run down. The rules are attached below FYI.
