ORIENTEERING: Octavian Droobers


Results from Cawston and another chance for families to have a go

Over 70 individuals and families took part in the Octavian Droobers’ event at Cawston Grange last week.

On a very sunny evening the winners were: Oliver Flippance M14 on the Park Long 2.7km course taking 16.11mins, Finlay Walker M10 was first in 17.51mins on the Short 2km course.

Top Octavian Droober on the Urban Short 3.1km course was Mike Hampton M70 from Rugby in 25.31mins and Nathan Lawson M20 was first on the Urban Long 6.4km course in 35.15mins.

Organiser Amy Sarkies was very pleased with the number of local people who came along to enjoy exploring and running around the parklands and streets of Cawston.

Next event

The next event will be on Wednesday, August 31 at Burton Dassett Country Park. Starts are from 6pm until 7.30pm.

It is a good venue to experience contours and a nice place for a picnic too.

Families are especially welcome to come along and try to find controls around the park using a specially drawn map and an electronic timer.
