Autumn in Anglia 2019

We had planned, together with our neighbouring club, WAOC, a forest-and-urban weekend, & had promised two contrasting events, but had not anticipated quite how much difference there would be! Saturday's event at West Harling was held in beautiful autumnal sunshine while Sunday's weather was the subject of a Met Office severe weather warning. The warning, together with early heavy rain & difficult driving conditions, discouraged some participants, but those who did attend had a second day of excellent orienteering.

Links to both sets of results, together with Routegadget maps, UKUL & SEOUL listings, comments from event officials, & to Steve Rush's excellent photos of the urban, taken despite the difficult weather conditions, are on our Results page.

Our thanks to all those who helped to make the events such a success - & to those who allowed us to use the venues.

Autumn in Anglia - this weekend!

We've had the first event, in the forest at West Harling today (you can view the results here), & our first-ever complete urban event in Bury St Edmunds is tomorrow, Sunday. There'll be courses to suit everyone, whatever your age or fitness level, &, in the urban, special "Taster" courses for newcomers. On-the-day entry is available for the "Taster" & for the competition courses - it's best to plan to arrive early in the registration period to enter your preferred competition course, as we have a finite number of maps still available for each one.

Our most recent Events Newsletter has information on Autumn in Anglia & on our other events over the winter, with links to more detailed information.

Urban orienteering's great fun - & the Junior courses are virtually traffic free so it's good for youngsters, with or without family support on the actual course!

Our Next Events:

Daisy's Wood

1st December 2019

Join us for another event in Rendlesham Forest, this time in the NW section known as Daisy's Wood - largely coniferous forest, but with deciduous areas & surface features for added interest (& to help you navigate!). There'll be the usual range of colour-coded courses, from White to Brown, to provide challenges for all ages & abilities. The event is also on the schools' league (ESSOL) list for 2019/20.

Pre-entry on Fabian4 is open until 24th November: entry on-the-day will depend on map availability.

Knettishall Heath

12th January 2020

Join us in one of our favourite areas, Suffolk Wildlife Trust's nature reserve at Knettishall Heath. The area has a mix of typical Breckland features - heathland, woodland, pits, tracks, paths - so there's plenty of variety to challenge the more experienced orienteer or to help newcomers master the basics. There'll be a range of courses on offer & the event also enables Juniors to score points in the ESSOL league.

Further details in due course..
