Around 25 keen wild runners got into Spring Women’s and Girls training this season – a great turnout.
The program was a little different to usual beginner training – we stayed well away from the compass and jumped deep into the map.
Some sessions were worked in pairs while others needed some solo exploration.
The Lolly-O proved a great driver and those with a competitive streak were hungry for a Royal Flush in Poker-O.
In fact we got more Royal than we bargained for, firstly with our Friday debrief focused on counting to 96, then to keep us on our toes, we were off to Queens Park for a group BBQ, before the final flush, orienteering with lights against the backdrop of a wild storm.
The group demonstrated the grit required to take on serious bush orienteering and its expected that many of the younger girls will seek out further orienteering opportunities.
