Firstly sorry for the lack of updates in a while, I've been ill and pathetic so my bad!
Results from BUCS Orienteering
On the weekend of the 20th Feb many of our members travelled down to Bristol to take part in the BUCS Orienteering championships. Safe to say we had a fantastic weekend and some great results from everyone.
Overall we won the Men's and came a close second in the Women's and we had some fantastic individual results as well! Notable performances include...
It's also worth pointing out that we were by far the best dressed University thanks to our swanky new white lycra so thanks to Adam Potter for managing to get the kit in time! (we also looked rather fabulous and had - again - the best costumes for the social on the Saturday night)
NB we're Teletubbies in case you didn't notice
Thanks to everyone who came along to the give it a go run today - fantastic turn out! Hope to see you all at the pub tonight and at future sessions :)
Good results for our girls at Sheldon on Thursday - 1st Lady for Anna and 2nd Intermediate for Hannah earning them both a bottle of wine and a pretty medal.
Last weekend saw many of our members return to Sheffield for a weekend of fun and games. We were split into two teams with 'Jazzy Jeff's Exotic Weekenders' being by far superior (i'm not biased at all) and took part in a series of challenges including a fell race/orienteering course on Blackamoor, 'social' challenges at the Captain's house and some good old fashioned sports day events near Burbage. Fun was had by all (we hope) and are looking forward to being reunited again at the Scottish and Aviemore in September. (photos in the gallery)
Nic Barber managed a sizeable PB to come in 1st despite racing at the weekend. Anna Hoogkamer was 39th (2nd lady) with a PB of over 1min (someone wasn't trying hard enough last time) and Hannah Bradley battled through illness to come in 114 (11th lady) so well done to them!
Well done to Nic Barber (19th) and Jack Wright (22nd) who went off to Bradda Niarbyl for the most recent English Champs Race and had to contend with a bizarre start right on the side of a steep accent!
Well done to Jack Wright (2nd) and Millar (7th) at the Hathersage Fell Race
A few of our members braved the sweltering heat to run up and down Win Hill at the Hope Fell Race. Most of us were sweating profusely before we even started so you can only imagine what we looked like after...
