The main Sussex Orienteering season takes a break until September, but keep an eye out for our trail running sessions on a Tuesday night.
Come and join a relaxed group of like-minded runners on trails of 4km to 13km. All abilities take part.
During the Summer, some of our members head off for Orienteering holidays in far off places. Take a look at our popular events page to get some inspiration. Most of these events are open to all comers - you don't have to be a pro.
This Sunday, at Preston Park is your last chance to improve your league position at the end of the Summer Sprint Series.
The event will be followed by a presentation of medals for the Sprint Series as well as prizes for the juniors who took part. All are invited to bring a picnic and catch up with others before the Summer break.
Southdowns fielded 11 teams at the SE Relays at Holmbush. Juniors (and some seniors) donned their war paint and got ready to do battle with the terrain.
Ultimate success went to our Handicap team of Chris Hooker, Tommy Heap and Will Heap winning the Handicap Trophy, our Women's Open Team of Bryony Crickmore, Maddie Bartlett and Anna Chapman winning the silver medal and Paul Luttman, John Morris and Neil Crickmore with a bronze in the Men's Open.
A small group of Southdowners took to the train to run in the South East Sprint Champs at the Olympic Park.
Congratulations to gold medalists Jack Kosky and Scarlet Heap, silver medalists Ffion Jones, Paul Luttman and Robin Smith and bronze medalist Anna Chapman.
After months of selection races all over the country, two of our junior squad members have been selected for the Junior Regional Orienteering Squads (JROS) summer training camps.
Congratulations to Scarlet Heap (W16) who is going to Deeside and Stanley Heap (M18) who is going to Stockholm. Looking forward to hearing your top o-tips when you get back!
Volunteers are the heart of our club. Every event is run by volunteer club members and all are encouraged to get involved. It's a great way to learn new skills and get to know your fellow Southdowners a little better.
