2021 Chairman’s Trophy
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 sun shone, over 200 orienteers turned out (from as far away as Bristol) and a good time was had by all. GO's top urban orienteer James Crawford planned 7 courses to cater for all ages from the under 12s up to the over 75s - nowadays known as Hyper Vets. The Start and Finish were in Stoke Park and most of the courses took competitors right over to Guildford Castle.
After the event, Tim Pugh who is one of GO's longest-serving members was presented with the Chairman's Trophy for 2021, for over 40 years service to British orienteering, during which (among other activities) he organised the 1988 JK, the 1994 British Champs, the 1999 World Champs and the 2005 World Cup.
