Next Regional EventTilgate + YBT SE Heat
Sun 3 Mar

Near: Crawley


Another opportunity to run around this lovely park and wood. Entries are now open on Fabian4.

This event also incorporates the qualifying heat for the Yvette Baker Trophy, a national junior orienteering competition, named after Britain's first World Orienteering Champion. Juniors of every ability can run on courses from Yellow to Green, with less confident juniors able to run in a pair with another junior. Every run counts, so this is a great time to get involved and compete for your club. Entries for the junior competition are via your club captain.

17th Mar 2019 - save the date

CSC 2017

Readers of CompassSport may have noticed in the Dec edition a list of the most successful clubs in the CompassSport Cup competition, where a strong correlation with geographical proximity to the final was noted. Despite the final not being held in the SE for over 35 years SO feature strongly in this table. This year though the final is being held in the South East (at Pippingford in October), but to get to this we must first get through the heat being held in the Ashdown Forest on Sun 17th March.
