In June 2018, 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!
Huge congratulations to our very own Roger Maher who became the M80 British Champion at Balmoral Castle this weekend. Congratulations also to Scarlet Heap, 4th on W16A and Robin Smith, 7th on M65L. Fantastic results for the SO members that made the long journey north!
