The Peter Palmer Junior Relays: The Results

The Peter Palmer Junior Relays took place at the weekend (Saturday 9 to Sunday 10 September) in Sutton Park, Sutton Coldfield.  24 teams took part from 15 different orienteering clubs across the UK. 

For the second year running a team from West Cumberland Orienteering Club (WCOC) - Crummock won the Peter Palmer Trophy, and a team from South Yorkshire Orienteers (SYO) - Killer Bees won the Joan George Trophy (for the team whose ages add up to 90 or less).  Suffolk Orienteering Club (SUFFOC) Rising Sun won the Norwich Orienteering Club Anniversary Trophy.

All teams enjoyed the challenge of running the first 2 Legs in the dark and there was a great atmosphere created by the cheering crowds which helped make it a thoroughly enjoyable event for all concerned.
