JK 2022 individual results

The Easter orienteering extravaganza that is the JK kicked off on Friday with a sprint event at Swansea University. There were only four SOC runners with Philip Eeles topping the billing with a 5th place on M65.

Numbers swelled for the middle distance race at Clydach Terrace on Saturday. This was a technical area with old mine workings covered in tussocks that also made the going tough. Top ten places went to: David Currie (8th on M45L), Philip Eeles (10th on M65L), Anya Crocker (1st on W35S), Christine Currie (7th on W40L), Lisa James (8th on W50L), Jane Morgan (3rd on W60L), and Di Smith (4th on W70S).

On Sunday, the action moved to Pwll Du for a long race. Although parts of the area had good running, much of it proved to be just as tough as Saturday with the addition of tall slag heaps to ascend/descend (repeatedly). Top performances were: Doug Greenwood (4th on M45S), Philip Eeles (4th on M65L), Anya Crocker (1st on W35S), Jane Morgan (4th on W60L), and Di Smith (10th on W70S).

The times from the Middle and Long are added together for an overall position. Unsurprisingly given her two performances, Anya finished first on W35S.

Junior Regional Orienteering Squad (JROS) Summer Tours 2022 - Help Required

JROS has for the last 10 years, organised and managed a number of training camps for junior orienteers in the UK and  Europe. These camps vary in length and in the age of the orienteers attending them, but they all share the same objective; that is to develop the orienteering talents of youngsters by giving them the opportunity to train with like minded individuals, in a variety of terrains and under the supervision of experienced coaches. For more details about the 2022 camps, see the JROS web site - www.jros.org.uk

These opportunities cannot go ahead without the support of volunteers who provide a range of skills including Team Management, Chefs, Coaching Managers, Senior and Assistant Coaches and in-Forest Teams. If you would like further details, please see the attached document.
