Leicestershire Orienteering Club Enjoy Competitive Orienteering Again

Leicestershire Orienteering Club (LEI) have traditionally run a series of 18-20 summer evening events, so the opening up of Orienteering was a chance to salvage something from the summer. 

A series of seven events starting on the 4 August and has given club members a chance to get out and do some competitive orienteering.

The latest event at Bennion Pools saw 35 club members tackle a middle-distance race that was part Urban and part parkland. 

Ursula Williamson, LEI’s Minor Events Co-ordinator, commented:  "Coping with the Covid -19 restrictions was difficult at first but as club members got in to the swing of the new normal it has become much easier and the club will be expanding the numbers of start places for later events.”
Club Secretary, Roger Phillips, said: "It’s just great to be out running again and seeing friends from the club”.
