JK 2022 Update
Guildford Orienteers (GO) welcomes new members of all ages, junior and adult, from complete beginners to experienced orienteers. The club is affiliated to British Orienteering, the sport’s national governing body and belongs to the South East Orienteering Association (SEOA).
You get the most benefit from joining GO with British Orienteering, including affiliation to SEOA. But you can also join GO without British Orienteering & affiliation to SEOA, or as your 2nd club if you’re already registered with British Orienteering as a member of another club.
Membership is on a calendar year basis. If you join as a new member on or after 1 November 2021 your membership will be valid up to the end of 2022.
Existing members should receive an email inviting you to renew. If you have a direct debit setup, your renewal will be automatic and your payment taken in December.
Standings after 3 rounds of the 2021/22 GO Club Championships are now available. Remember Best 4 runs to count
GO put on another Guildford City Race today after a few years off (the last GCR was in Godalming, before the pandemic changed our world.
The results are in for the VOC Extravaganza.
And the winner with an unassailable lead after the initial Christmas opening of the courses was Richard Collyer.
It’s not quite the JK but to ease you back into orienteering we have resurrected the GO Christmas challenge for Easter!
The challenge is to complete 3 different GO VOCs during the 3+ weeks from Good Friday to Sunday 25th April. There will be some sort of handicap, still to be worked out, to make everything fair and to determine the GO VOC Champions!
As the UK begins to exit from the recent COVID-19 virus lockdown UK orienteering events have started to resume.
So with that in mind we have an event on St Marth's Hill, Guildford on April 24th
Throughout the pandemic clubs have launched more socially distanced orienteering courses in the outdoors and these remain available. So if you want to get out and Orienteer and there isn't an event on nearby perhaps try a Virtual Orienteering course (also known as MapRunF) or a Permanent Orienteering course (our club’s is at Newlands Corner, Guildford, but there are many others).
Thank you to all those who ran at Hampstead Heath especially those who ran up/down. I know a few were unable to make it due to the rise of Covid 19 in the UK. Team results show that we won the heat somewhat more convincingly that in 2019, 117 points ahead of DFOK and 120 ahead of MV.
COVID UPDATE: The 2020 final was cancelled, the plan is that all qualifiers for 2020 will be invited to complete in the 2021 final.
The 2019/20 club champs concluded at the HH event at Burnham Beeches and Egypt Woods. Richard has maintained the lead but there are a few changes below him
There was a good turnout of 21 Gophers (9 on the green course) and some fast runs but no changes at the top. We welcomed James back and it was good to see Tom competing again. They could both shake up the men's results.
