This year's North-West Sprint Orienteering Championships took place last Sunday, 16th June, as part of SELOC's Horwich Festival of Racing. It was a 2 part sprint with the times for each part added together for the final result.
Congratulations to all the juniors who took part in last Saturdays NW Heat for the Yvette Baker Trophy at Aitken Wood, organised by PFO. The team, consisting mainly of students from Fallibroome Academy, tied for 1st place with WCOC on 890 points and so gained a place in the Final. A fantastic achievement!
The Final will take place on Sunday 7th July at Sandringham. We wish them all the very best of luck.
