SuffOC Champs 2018

This year’s Club Championships were held at WAOC’s Rowney Warren event on 25th November. The Warren is described as "a well-contoured pine forest with significant spur and valley structure" & the event was chosen as it provided a greater technical challenge for the competitors.

Our congratulations to Lizzie Rosewell for a storming run which enabled her to win the SuffOC Punchbowl this year and to her husband, Neil, the close runner-up.

British Schools Orienteering Champs 2018

From John, our Club Captain:

The British Schools Orienteering Championships took place last weekend at Witton Country Park in Blackburn.The weather was superb and our juniors did very well, securing a number of podium places. Theo Stevenson-Barnes came 2nd in the B7 category; Barney Steventon-Barnes was 3rd in the B9 category and Matt Clarke, in his final school championships, finished 3rd in the B13 class.

Barnardiston School took over 20 runners to the competition. The majority of their competitors had only taken up the sport at the beginning of term but they still managed some good runs, notably Ollie Vendy who came 3rd in the B5.

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. Further details in due course...
