The Orienteering Club for Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield
Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport that exercises both the mind and the body. The aim is to navigate in sequence between control points marked on a unique orienteering map and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace.
Orienteering can take place anywhere from remote forest and countryside to urban parks and school playgrounds.  It’s a great sport for runners, joggers and walkers who want to improve their navigation skills or for anyone who loves the outdoors. Orienteering - The adventure sport for all!

Congratulations to the 16 EPOC members who ran for the club at the Compass Sport Final on very well planned courses at a great orienteering area and perfect running conditions for the time of year.

Given that 13 scores are needed for a full team score and these have to be from a cross section of courses, combined with the fact we had no runners on either brown or junior men, we should be very proud of the fact we came 6th out of 9 clubs running.

Our counting scorers were as follows:- Richard Payne - 97, Emma Harrison - 96, Mike Pedley - 95, Amanda Crawshaw - 94, Julie Couch - 91, Laura Harrison - 90, Paul Taylor - 90, Graham Lloyd - 89, Sam Crawshaw - 88, Ian Couch - 88, Megan Harrison - 86, Paul Jackson - 81, Alistair Tinto - 80. Congratulations also to Rebecca Lloyd, Jane Payne and Michael Wood for their efforts as well as Alex Crawshaw who is too young to run in the main competition but had fun on the yellow course.

Particular thanks to Sam Crawshaw for running up on only his 3rd orange course, I believe. Also huge thanks to the whole Crawshaw/Taylor family and Alistair Tinto for making the effort to turn up on the day despite various unexpected crises.

Full results, route gadget etc are on the Southern Navigators website so you can see what you missed!
