British Orienteering Long Distance Championships

Congratulations to Laura Brown who won the W16 silver medal at the recent British Orienteering Long Distance Championships on the sand dunes of Braunton Burrows (Devon). Laura was close to winning W16 having had several fastest legs but finished about a minute (54.38) behind Daisie Rennie of WCOC (53.14). her superb run can be seen on the route gadget link

Increasing the complexity of the vast area of dunes were multiple criss-crossing paths and tracks, many not on the map! making relocation a bit of a nightmare.

The other success from the small LOC contingent was Carol McNeill’s win in W75 – traveling through torrential rain & thunderstorms to retain her title.

Junior Home Internationals

Laura also ran for England in the JHIs the following weekend.
