Orienteering on BBC Radio York with Presenter Steve Bailey

Steve Whitehead member of Eborienteers did a great job chatting to Presenter Steve Bailey on BBC Radio York on Sunday (24 March).

The Outdoor piece on BBC Radio York takes place usually around 11:40 am on every Sunday morning, and it is usually around a ten-minute interview LIVE on air about outdoor activity.  Last Sunday the discussion was on the outdoor sport of  Orienteering.

Presenter Steve Bailey on BBC Radio York told Jennie Taylor, British Orienteering's Communications Officer:  ‘’It was fascinating to find out more about orienteering from Steve Whitehead, in an age when arguably it’s more important than ever to get out and be active; orienteering clearly provides benefits on so many levels, from the physical benefits to building confidence and self-esteem and giving people a taste of our great outdoors’’.


British Orienteering would like to thank Steve Whitehead (Eborienteers) for taking time out of his day to promote orienteering live on radio.
