Burton Dassett and White Rose Results


Burton Dassett Country Park was the venue for the local orienteering event and proved popular on the sunny evening.  Mark Rookledge designed some interesting courses for competitors including a mass start for the long 5.5km course, resulting in some great racing in to the finish.



Urban racing was popular with Octavian Droobers club members this weekend, with Lincoln, Sheffield and Tewkesbury being the locations of the events.


First up, as part of the Race the Castles series in Yorkshire on Saturday, was the Sheffield race which saw Peter Carey M75 the outright winner of the Men Hyper Vet class racing around the 3.9km course in 31.59mins.
