Peter Palmer Junior Relay
Recently a number of our juniors teamed up with some SAXONS juniors to form two combined club teams for the annual Peter Palmer Junior Relay. For those that are not familiar with the event, it is similar to the Harvester Relay in that it has a night time start, then transitions through dawn and into the early morning. Two competitions are provided the full Peter Palmer Junior Relay for teams of six competitors and the Daybreak Relay for teams of four. We had a team in each competition. Both teams did exceptionally well against national and international opposition, with our Peter Palmer Junior Relay team (including Maddy, Vadim and Maxime) coming third in the small clubs category. Well done to all those juniors that took part.

GLOSS Series 2019
This enjoyable series of events takes place with one event each weekend in a 5 week period. The GLOSS course is of Light Green standard and there is usually an extension for those wanting a longer run. It is also a team event with the best six scores from club members at each event contributing to our score. A handicapping system is used so anyone having a good run will score good points for the club. Click here for the 2019 handicapping details. There is also a Yellow standard course for newcomers and developing orienteers. The series flyer is here.
The events are:
Sunday 23 June Gunpowder Park Chingford
Sunday 30 June Barnes Common
