Training, Racing & Treasure Hunting

14-11-2013

Term is now in full swing as is UBOC's full program of activities.

We were back in Ashton Court for the first Wednesday Training session of the year. Ashton Court is great for orienteering at all levels as it has as good variety features from ponds to cliffs hidden inside the woods.

The first race outside of Bristol was at Standish Woods on the edge of the Cotswold Hills overlooking the Severn valley. The steep slopes made for some tricky diagonal legs, and some tough climbs!

For a bit of non-orienteering fun we pulled a couple of teams together for the Race for Bristol scavenger hunt around the city centre. Team 'WTF? Where's the Finish' won while the girls team 'Pimp My Stride' came back a second after a spot of illegal cycling. You can see the winnings below!

Much more to come this term!
