A high attendance of club members at both events was partly due to the good weather and as a build up to the annual international orienteering four day Easter Festival (the JK) which this year is taking place in Scotland.

John Middler, organising his third event in three weeks, was pleased at the participation levels at Stoneleigh (90 competitors), and in particular the number of juniors who came along to take part in the club’s extra coaching and training run by Debbie Morse and the Emmerson family.

On the short Orange course Suzanne Humphries W45 was 1st in 14.37mins, and juniors Davina Mistry and Thomas Pegler were 2nd and 3rd in 19.43mins and 20.53mins. On the Light Green Course Dermot Lynch M40 was 1st in 36mins, John Ward M65 2nd in 36.06mins and John Bowman M65 3rd in 40.31mins. On the longer Green Course Matthew Halliday M21 was 1st in 25.13mins, Chris McCartney M40 2nd in 27.13mins and Tom Jeffries M40 3rd in 27.45mins.

At the Leicester Orienteering Club regional event over two and fifty hundred competitors from around the midlands ran through Ratby and Martinshaw Woodlands, part of the new National Forest, crisscrossing paths and scrambling through bramble undergrowth. Club members produced some fine results: on the long 9.22k Brown course Harrison McCartney M14 was 5th in 1.07.41mins, Lesley Ross W45 was 3rd on the Green 5.02k course in 42.28mins and Richard Gardner M55 4th in 42.54mins, on the Short Green 3.9k course Janet Richardson W60 was 4th in 50.05mins and John Leyden M14 4th on the Light Green 3.44k course in 38.51mins.
