Southampton Orienteering Club is celebrating its 50th year

Southampton Orienteering Club is celebrating its 50th year. As part of our celebrations, we are introducing a new event in an exciting format.

The Sunset and Beyond Relay pits teams of six against each other in a parkland and urban setting.

The early runners will start in daylight then, as the sun sets, later runners will compete in the dark.

Each team will have at least two female runners and be restricted to an age and gender maximum handicap. The competition will be tight with lots of head-to-head running helped by mini-mass starts just a few minutes later than the expected winning time for the previous leg.

You get the excitement of the Harvester in a four to five-hour event!

Date:  24 March 2018
Time:  5.00pm
Location: Fleming Park, Eastleigh, Hampshire.
 
Team captains can submit their entries now here
 
Entries are open now until Monday 19 March 2018.
 
Team declarations can be made at any time up until just before the event.

 

For more information visit Southampton Orienteering Club's website here.

Volunteer Consultation – Thank you

Successful volunteer consultation concludes.

British Orienteering wishes to pass on it’s thanks to all those who have contributed so far during the volunteer consultation on the member's forum or via email that took place throughout January.

Volunteer strategy lead Peter Brooke commented:  “The feedback received has been invaluable and very constructive. We’re now working through all the contributions and moving into the next phase, investigating some areas further and consolidating our approach.”

Peter added:  “If you’ve not had a chance to send your thoughts on volunteering there’s still time. A key focus of this strategy is that it is always under review and moving with the needs of the members. I’m more than happy to receive emails or speak on the phone”

Should you have any thoughts on volunteer recruitment and development, simply contact Peter Brooke.  Email: pbrooke@britishorienteering.org.uk or Tel:  07540 150963.
