Stoke Park Wood Results

We hoped you enjoyed the sunlit bluebell-filled Stoke Park Woods. Our thanks go to first-time organiser Steve Sutch and junior planner Duncan Currie and their small team of volunteers.

Results can be found on the MapRun website:

Apologies to the two competitors on the score course who were mistakenly given all control maps.

A big thank you to every one who came along yesterday. A lot of sign ups on the day led to 47 competitors (71 counting all those in family groups). Many new people, so hope the event was fun and interesting, and that you return for another event, and maybe join the club.

Especially, I'd like to congratulate Duncan for his diligent planning, and thanks along with David, and Christine for all the logistics and work on the day at start, finish and beyond. Mark for his mapping. Deb, Di, Terry, Bernie and Mark for volunteer duties: set-up, car parking, assisting novices and experience orienteers, kite collection. Finally thanks to Julian, Colin, Kevin, Helen, David and Di for advice, permissions and coordination to make the event happen in the first place.

CompassSport magazines

Mary and David Nixon have decided to part company with their back catalogue of CompassSport magazines, reaching back to the very first edition! If you'd be interested in taking them off their hands, please email webmaster [at] (webmaster[at]socweb[dot]org).

Winchester East MapRun now up and running

The second activity in our MapRun League 2023 is now open. You can run the course any time between Friday 28th April and 11th May. However, if you would like to meet up with other runners please come to the start at 6.30 pm on 11th May or if you would just like to attend the social come along at 7.30 pm to the Willow Tree pub in Winchester. For further details and to download the map see the event page.

If you missed the first league event, Colin Stride's excellent MapRun around Oliver's Battery, don't forget that all MapRuns in the league will be available for you to run for another year but it will not count towards the league if the date of the social has passed.
