Race News: Acorns good at finding lampposts quickly!

Several Acorns have been trying out the sport of orienteering with our friends at Eborienteers for their Winter Lamp-O series. This involves running around (slightly manically in my case) looking for specific lampposts on a map, and noting down their number, basically a simplified score orienteering event – the winner visiting the most (correct) lampposts in 45 minutes. It’s great fun and great sprint training!

Richard Gover took the overall series lead, and Laura Bennett & Sam Dredge took the fastest pairs prize. Pretty good trophies too!

There is a summer Lamp-O series planned, and several “standard” local orienteering events coming up in the Spring – more info here
