Thursday 26th March - start 5:00 - 6:00pm - "Powter How" near Thornthwaite

Click on the link above for more info, or email Roger Jackson (rogersjackson@msn.com) if you have any queries.

The planner has checked this afternoon, and it seems possible to get to the event parking via Braithwaite, the Swindale Inn and Stair (rather than having to go round via Grange).

Please note that the Portinscale to Catbells road on the west side of Derwent Water is very likely to be closed due to roadworks.  Traffic is being diverted via Grange, adding an extra 10-15 minutes to the journey.  There may be an alternative via Stair in Newlands, but this may be closed too.  It is also narrow and may not be any quicker - we need to be mindful of local traffic.  No signage to the event will be in place because of this.  

Make sure that you leave plenty of time to get to the event!

Don't forget, a prize giving for the end of the winter Night Series will take place between 8:30 and 9:00pm in the Coledale Inn, Braithwaite after this event.

Final Orient8 session - Tuesday (14th April) 6:30-7:30pm in Harris Park, Cockermouth. 

If you have never tried this fantastic family sport before, come and give it a go.  If you have already tried it and want to improve your skills, come along.  The sessions are for children and adults to enjoy and learn together.  No experience needed, just a positive attitude!  Kit needed – just trainers and clothes to be active in – no high heels!

More details, and a map of where to find us (!) on the Events page.

Unfortunately, this event has had to be cancelled, due to problems with permission.

Interland 2015 England Team

Great results for Alastair Thomas, winning the M16 course (by 3 minutes), and Mike Billinghurst (5th M50), who were part of the England team which once again won the "Interland" competition (held this weekend in the "picturesque and intricate Surrey hills"). Congratulations also to Lynne Thomas for her win on W45L at the Southern Champs (held alongside Interland) - could she be convinced to run for England...?
