The British Sprint and Middle Distance Championships took place over the weekend 1st and 2nd September far away in South West England.  There was an excellent turnout by Scottish Orienteers and at the end of the weekend a total haul of 19 medals was heading back over the border.

The British Sprint Championships were staged over the multi-levelled University of Bath building complex, with pre-event mapping notes and a close study of Google Streetview essential preparation.

The British Middle Championships were in a surprisingly complex area of old mine workings in an intricate and runnable forest near Wells.  The author's 5 minute mistake was possibly caused by invisible force lines emanating from nearby Glastonbury Tor.
