CompassSport Cup Tie 2019

South London Orienteers were second behind a strong all-round Southdowns team performance in yesterday’s CompassSport Cup Tie in Ashdown Forest.

Results (on the host club Saxons website)

So we won’t be competing in the National Final (which is in the South-East) this Autumn. Our best wishes to Southdowns who will represent the home region.

Details of CompassSport Cup and results from round the country.

We had a great turnout of over 50, with a fair amount of car sharing and several cycling to the compact assembly at “An Enchanted Place”. Start and finish were nearby, and there was sunshine, but a biting wind somewhat curtailed the socialising.

Congratulations to four SLOW runners who won their races: Abi Weeds (women’s open), Mihaly Ormay (short brown), Andy Jones (men’s green) and Mike Murray (short green). And Tom Davies, Paul Couldridge and Alan Leakey would have won their courses had it not been for one of the above named team-mates.

MBO SCORE 2019 Results

2019 Series Results

Our first event of the 2019 Series took place in March at Tilford in the Surrey Hills. Despite the untimely break in the good run of weather during February, the rain did not spoil things and everyone came back looking very muddy but with lots of smiles. With all the mud and sand, brake pads might make for suitable prizes this year.

Series standings so far are:

  • Male Vet (40+) – Andy Gregg
  • Female Vet (40+) – Rachel Drew
  • Male Open – Simon Williamson
  • Female Open – Katie Brayne
  • Youth (Under 21) – Adam Conway / Thomas White

Overall Series Standings after the first event.

Wimbledon Common Night-O Results

For last month’s night event it snowed whilst controls were put out. This month we had the hottest ever February day.

Organiser/Planner Sue Carter:

We had a better than expected turn out. Thanks to those who helped us out by recycling their maps at the end of course. If you would like a pdf of your course, please let me know and I will send you one. You can also upload your route on Routegadget, record where you went and see where others went too.

Thanks to helpers on the night: Don, Gordon, Steve, Ed and Pete. It’s
your help that keeps these events going.

Please accept my apologies for the misplacement of Control-3 (163). I will learn from my mistake placing it and it won’t happen again. I hope it didn’t detract from anyone’s enjoyment too much.

Kentish Town Street-O Results

Here are the Race Results  and Series Results from last night’s Street Orienteering Race in Kentish Town, organised by our friends at London Orienteering Klubb.

Thanks to Alex Owen for a great race and it was great to see over 100 runners enjoying themselves on a lovely evening.

I hope you can join us at the next Street-O race on 12 March in Brentford (West London), with details to follow shortly.

Box Hill Fell Race Results

The 38th Box Hill Fell race took place on Saturday 19th January 2019. Thanks to organiser Harold Wyber and the team of volunteer helpers.

Update Monday 21st 10:45am – Sorry, we correct the results.

The Fabian4 entry form allowed people to enter as M45, M55, etc. but there were no prize categories for these.  They should therefore have been re-categorised as M40, M50, etc but it was all quite rushed this year and that manual change fell through the cracks, sorry. We have now done this and it affects the summary results.

  • ·         Jean Shotter becomes the 3rd placed W50. 
  • ·         Andrew Reeves becomes the 3rd placed M40.
  • ·         Natasha Cendrowicz becomes the leading W40 pushing the previously reported 1st & 2nd runners down one place.

We owe Natasha Cendrowicz a prize.

Rob McCaffrey has a 10 minute video of the race – with nearly everyone pictured. The heading picture is from the video.
