British Orienteering has published updated guidance about coronavirus and orienteering, requiring that all orienteering events be cancelled at this time. SYO has therefore followed this advice and cancelled all events within the next few months.

Orienteering in the News - Holiday Reading

Published Monday, 22 July 2019 21:31

Whilst you enjoy a well-earned rest this holiday, don't forget to take us with you! Below is a fab list of holiday reading/watching/listening (compiled by Nick L) that should keep you entertained...

  • The JOK Chasing Sprint, featured on BBC Scotland's The Adventure Show is an excellent attempt to make orienteering look like a serious sport, but something anyone can have a go at. Watch the live coverage from it on BBC iPlayer (link ending soon)
  • 'The Run In' Podcast is hosted by former ShUOC (Sheffield Uni) students Katherine Bett and Will Gardner. The first episode featured former SYO coach Kris Jones and a more recent episode features our very own Cat Taylor.  
  • Whilst listening to the podcasts its worth looking at the relevant maps (Episode 2 - World Cup / Episode 3 - Jukola)
  • There's a nice interview with Cat in Athletics Weekly
  • The On The Red Line website covers the GB Elite team who compete on the international stage
  • The SLOW 'Think Fast, Run Hard' videos featuring many of the GB team members including local post-grad student Charlotte Ward
  • SYO itself even makes the news from time to time - here for its Junior Development programme

Have a great holiday (maybe with some Summer Multidays and adventures abroad?), and see you all in September for a jam-packed Autumn of Orienteering!
