SuffOC Champs 2017

The SuffOC championships were held at the WAOC event in Brandon Park on 29th October. Congratulations to Will - seen here being presented with the Punchbowl - as the overall winner, with Louise & Lizzie second & third respectively.

SuffOC's 'Final Sprint' competition

SuffoC members had their own 'Final Sprint' competition for the run-in on the last leg at the Compass Sport Final at Virtuous Lady, Horrabridge. Although they had been competing for several kilometres across the steep-sided valley on the edge of Dartmoor, some excellent split times were achieved on the final uphill section. Alesha & Jack were the overall winners, with times of 25 & 17 seconds respectively, & were awarded the coveted SuffOC mugs at the recent Brandon Park event. The full list can be viewed here & photos of some of our competitors in our Facebook album.

Knettishall Heath

Speeding Up Your Orienteering

9th December 2017

Clive is leading a training session aimed at improving orienteers' ability to "flow through" controls and remain focussed when running in the forest with others and also improving understanding of symbol control descriptions. Knettishall Heath has an excellent mix of open heathland and mixed woodland. All welcome - free to SuffOC members, £2 per person for members of other clubs & non-affiliated runners.

Please contact Clive at in advance so that he knows who to expect & how many maps will need to be printed.
