RACES and COMPETITIONS Orienteering events are happening even though you might have to look a bit harder than usual to find them, start with the British Orienteering Website.
Entries are open for the British Sprint Championship Weekend in Skelmersdale on August 21/22. Not many WREKIN people are entered for the individual Sprint Championships Sunday August 22nd but the British Sprint Relay Championships are being held on Saturday Aug 21st . Teams are mixed sex and age based. If you would like to be in a WREKIN Sprint relay team please let Tom Lewis know email@example.com .
ADVANCE NOTICE The Compass Sport Cup Final was due to be held in Sutton Park on October 17th but has no venue at the moment. If the event does happen, we are eligible to send a team.
AGM and WREKIN FUTURE We have to have a delayed AGM in October- several WREKIN job roles will become available, so if you would like to take the club into the future please consider stepping up.
The 2021 Midland Championships were held at Stapeley and Rorrington as part of Springtime in Shropshire on 30th May. On one of our tougher areas WREKIN Orienteers produced a number of winning or nearly winning performances at both ends of the age range.
Top three placings are shown in the table.
