SYO qualify for YBT Final

Published Wednesday, 18 May 2016 17:09

On Saturday 15th May SYO hosted the Yorkshire heat of the Yvette Baker Trophy at Sandall Beat. The YBT is an inter-club competition for juniors named after Britain’s first orienteering world champion. Doncaster Racecourse provided an excellent base and the wood was gloriously runnable, producing some very fast times.

BOC 2016

Published Tuesday, 03 May 2016 18:16

The weekend of 30th April and Ist May saw a large number of SYO members travel to Brown Clee for the British Orienteering Championships. Brown Clee is both physically and technically challenging. It combines complex and rugged moorland with wooded hillsides. The woodland is predominantly mature and fast, whilst the moorland has intricate contour detail throughout with a profusion of depressions and pits.
