What is Orienteering?

Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport. The aim is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time.

It does not matter how young, old or fit you are as you can choose the course that's right for you and run, jog or walk it at your own pace. It is excellent for adults wanting to shape up, add some excitement and mental challenge to their running and meet new friends. It is also ideal for families as everyone can take part at the level that's right for them and it allows children to develop independence, confidence and decision making skills.

Yvette Baker Trophy heats

Tuesday, 23 September 2008 01:00
With some juniors away due to other commitments we only just had enough to make a full team of 9. Despite that, some good performances led us to second place, just 5 points behind Airienteers, including first place positions for Cari Littler, Louise Adams, Katherine Hall and Aiden Sahni. Full results on the CLARO website.

Peter Palmer Relays

Peter Palmer relay - the start

For the first time in a long time (ever?) SYO had enough juniors available to enter a team for the Peter Palmer relays. This is an inter-club competition designed to give relay experience to junior members across a wide age/ability range. 

SYO was represented by Robin Tett, Simon and Adam Bradbury, Aiden Smith, Cari Littler and Katherine Hall. The team put in a good all round performance to finish a frustrating fourth, so just missing out on the medals.
