Too many trees

Tonight's session used a small area, adjoining the race cycle track, with plenty of small trees, all individually mapped.

Four courses were available with everyone managing each. Some ran hard, others walked or jogged. Staying in control and carefully checking position was key. There were lots of successes as well as much disbelief when downloading showed 1 or more errors had been made. I think Elaine was the only one managing a full set of correct results on the first attempt which wasn't surprising as this was quite a complex challenge.

Bank holiday next Monday so Litherland Sports Park is closed and we won't have a session. Looking forward to seeing new and regular participants on Monday 7th June when we'll be having our own World Cup draw courtesy of David.

Victoria Park Urban-O

Great turnout this afternoon in Crosby's Victoria Park. Over 100 people, many in family groups, enjoyed the Spring sunshine when taking part in the Urban-O challenge.

The goal was to visit the 10 control points marked on a detailed map in any order, with each worth 10 points. However, there were several other controls set out in the park and visiting any of them incurred a penalty of 5 each time!!

Well done everyone. Hopefully lots of you can make it to Litherland Sports Park 6.30-8pm Mondays for the orienteering club night sessions. Scores and times from today appear below(click to enlarge).

Many thanks to Park Rangers Christine and Angela, the Friends of Victoria Park and Diane for help and support before, during and after.

Future sessions

What can you expect over coming weeks? The aim is enjoyment while developing cardio fitness, agility and orienteering skills. Coming up you'll have opportunities to do circuits, Snakes and Ladders, Too Many Trees, Amazing Maze plus more conventional orienteering and jogging/running. The biscuits at the end of each session are also proving popular!!

Remember, sessions cater for all ages and abilities and no prior experience or special equipment is needed.
