West Cumberland Orienteering Club is based in the Western half of the English Lake District. We host events on a weekly basis from informal Thursday nights to district or regional events held at weekends. Everyone is welcome to try the sport.
Many thanks to Mike Pearson and his team for planning and organising today's Copeland Chase, and to all the competitors who supported this event. This year a Score format was used, with four courses offering a challenge from 1 to 4 hours. Congratulations to Steve Birkinshaw (pictured with the Joe Long Trophy) who won the 4hr course, and Karen Parker who won 1st Lady. John Slater, who after 10 years or planning and organising this event finally got a run, won the 3hr course, with Sue Skinner first Lady. The 2hr course was won by junior Daniel Spencer, with GB teammate Niamh Hunter first Lady, and the 1hr course winner was another WCOC junior, Wilf Teasdale, with Rosie Spencer winning first Lady.
