WEE 13 – CRAIGAVON

WEE 13 is heading out West for its annual trip to the sticks, so this is your chance to come and find out what we get up to out amongst the Orchards. So, to all of you looking to make the journey – Welcome to the County of Apples. If you believe all you read many of you might be expecting to see loads of cones and a maze. You may even be secretly looking forward to it. So who am I to disappoint? But that’s not what we’re about. You can expect much more than that out here, as Read More …

Orchard County present : Armagh Middle Distance Urban

So what are you doing on Sunday? Nothing planned? Looking for something to do? Fancy stretching your legs? Then why not come down to Armagh and partake in the third of our series of Middle Distance Urban events. 5 and a bit km round the streets with a smidgeon of climb ( well maybe a bit more than that 😉 ).

Then please let me know, either by email below or on Facebook ( Orchard County Orienteers Read More …

Lisburn Urban Race – CANCELLED

I’ve been thinking long and hard about this and its not a decision that fills me with glee, but as it stands with only 6 days to go to the event I have only had one offer of help. As we’ve said before, our sport is run for us, by us, and as a result if no-one volunteers then there can be no event. Most of the tasks are relatively simple and guidance will always be at hand if you’ve never volunteered before. You will always get a run if you want one, and if you’re going to go to Read More …

Sunday’s Physical Training Session Drumgor, Craigavon

Orienteering Interval Sessions – or very, very, very short course orienteering round the Drumgor Estate. Better keep your wits about you as well as this will be more than physical exercise. Start time 11.30 One hours exercise followed by drinks and calories ( you have to replace the energy right? ) We’ll meet at the car park in the middle of the estate on Drumgor Heights ( by the shops and Primary School ). See you on Sunday for a little bit of fun.

Physical Training Session – Sunday 11th Feb, Drumgor, Craigavon

Any more spring lambs? I only have a very small but distinguished group so far. As you may know, several members of LVO are currently in the middle of a coaching assessment and as part of this we need to put on a Physical Training Session. So i’m looking for a few sacrificial lambs, sorry volunteers, who will still have some energy left after the NIOA Score and Night Champs to take part in an exercise I have devised around Drumgor on the Sunday morning. Don’t worry, i’m not looking to kill you and it will be entirely up to you Read More …
