Peter Palmers Double For SYO Juniors
Two teams of SYO juniors competed at the Peter Palmer Relays last Sunday morning. The relays start at 5am and the teams of 6 run through dawn to the early morning. This year the event returned to Sutton Park, Birmingham and was hosted by the City Of Birmingham Orienteering Club (COBOC).
SYOs first team won by 8 minutes to win the Peter Palmer trophy for the second time for the club. Such is the strength of the club juniors at the moment that, besides being able to field a second team, that second team won the Joan George trophy in a sprint finish with Lakeland Orienteering Club (LOC). Teams are eligible for the Joan George trophy if the team members have a combined BOF age of less that 90. The photo below shows both the winning teams (and a strange white rabbit!).

Congratulations to our juniors!
