Winter League results updated. Prizes are given for men and ladies separately so the spreadsheet has changed. At the top are three tables showing the top 5 in the Open (everybody), Men and Ladies categories. (There is no prize for Open, it’s just shown for interest). If you click on the blue links (Open, M, F) it will take you down to the full tables. Clicking on the blue links in those tables takes you back to the top.


Sat 26th Jan 2019 – Blake's Heaven
Please note change in route due to ongoing forestry works.  This makes the course approximately 2km longer.  Start and finish in the usual place, at Lamplugh Green in front of the church.
The local orienteering club (WCOC) has kindly produced a map of the route, which will be for sale on the day for £2.  The money raised goes to support the WCOC juniors section.

Winter League results updated to include Clough Head. Please check carefully. The race results did not contain the runner’s club, so two errors are possible – I’ve missed a CFR runner, or I’ve included a runner not in CFR with the same name as someone who is.


Winter League results updated to include King of the Castle. I was a mere serf. Well done to David Fell and Kate Beaty for winning their categories.




There has been some discussion and interest shown in the English Championships for 2019.

Hopefully we can get some teams out. A provisional summary of details is attached on the following page

Winter League results up to Christmas Pudding. Well done to Joe Dugdale for breaking the record in that race.

Top 3 races to count. Fourth race used where there's a tie. Category (MSen, etc.) shown is that at first race of series and is just for interest.

As this is my first outing as Club Statistician please keep an eye out for any errors. I believe I've ironed out all the buglets from the spreadsheet which processes the results for me, but since I keep tinkering with it I might very well have introduced new ones!
