This week, ShUOC has been up and about training and racing!
On Thursday, we teamed up with our sponsors at Up & Running Sheffield for a ShUOC × Altra Try-on run! Thank you to the team at Up & Running, the club had a brilliant time trying out the shoes and trying not to fall in the bogs of Redmires!
On Saturday, a large group of ShUOCers attended Endcliffe Park Parkrun, as well as others who visited other parkruns in Sheffield. Well done to Abbie Walker on a smashing overall 5km PB!!
On Sunday, some members orienteered in the Forest of Dean in the compass sport Cup, representing their home clubs. Will Lake and his SBOC team lead the way in the Trophy. Chloe Potter and Ben Stevens raced for local SYO club, who were 1st in the Cup, and Joseph Goodwin raced for WCOC who placed 7th!!
And in the Peaks, Henry Webb took part in the Roaches Fell race and placed 2nd, despite dealing with a fall that removed most of his chin!
Finally, a massive congratulations to Jessica Harrison, who completed her first ever marathon in the Gower!!!! A great achievement, well done!!!!
This weekend ShUOC held its Freshers Weekend in the Lake District!!
The trip got off to a great start with a late night run up to Gummer's How, where bogs reigned supreme and paths up slopes mysteriously dissappeared.
On Saturday there was orienteering training around Great Tower, with a great mix of courses for all, and a clock relay to round it all off!! The Forest Alc-O followed not long after, where Dominic Green managed to defend his title as an Alc-O champion, only just fending off Tim Barry who came in a close 2nd, and Will Lake coming in 3rd.
Sunday, and ShUOC set off for runs across the Coniston Fells. Despite the clouds being down at the top, the views lower down were still beautiful, making the pain of the hills worthwhile!
Earlier in the week, ShUOC has its Spooky Halloween Social Run down Rivelin. Some good outfits!!!!
And finally, some members who didn't attend the Freshers Weekend, attended the SYO Orienteering event at the EIS and Olympic Legacy Park. Blue: 2nd Adrien Gallet, 10th Chloe Potter.
A big thank you to all who helped organise the trip away this weekend, it was a big task, but it was carried out excellently!
