A prize giving will be arranged shortly - please let me know if you spot any errors/duplications here.
*NOTE: some duplications corrected 1st October affecting M10B, W21E and White course positions.
The SOL5/6 weekend scores are all included. The M21E Middle Distance is used for the ‘Black’ course scores as well as M21E. W21E includes both races from the weekend, but these do not appear in any course scores as the W21E courses were unique on both days.
Outstanding Win for Scotland
The annual Junior Inter-Regional Championships took place over the weekend of 26&27 September and was hosted by the West Midlands Orienteering Association.
Scotland won all the trophies – Individual, Relays, Mens, Womens and the Overall cup. Plus Sasha won the trophy for the best performance in the Individual competition.
This was a fantastic performance from the Scottish Juniors who all ran enthusiastically over the whole weekend. Well Done to them all!

In other news, there are reports from multi-day events elsewhere, the regular coaching and squad pages, domestic event news, plus a preview of what’s coming next. Read on, for all this and more!
Due to the retirement of Maureen Brown and Bill Stevenson Scottish Orienteering and Scotjos are looking for a new Squad Team Manager and Lead Coach.
Both roles are voluntary and involve working with the best Scottish Juniors to develop their orienteering skill set and gain representation for their country and GB. This is primarily achieved through training weekends at home and a two week camp abroad every second year.
Application date extended to Sunday 3rd October.
What's It All About
Orienteering is all about maps, adventure, challenging yourself, testing your physical fitness and mental agility; finding controls in amazing parts of the country.
We think our poster #FIND202 encapsulates this pretty well, and coming soon is a competition, where you can win prizes, watch this space!
