Coronavirus (COVID 19)
Coronavirus (COVID 19) Please check the British Orienteering website regularly for updates on this.
ALL ORIENTEERING EVENTS & ACTIVITIES SUSPENDED WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT
Email sent to all British Orienteering members on Tuesday March 17th.
It is with great sadness that we are now in a position where all orienteering activities in the UK have to be suspended with immediate effect.
We are aware that the Coranvirus outbreak is a very fluid and rapidly changing situation. We all, therefore, continue to follow advice from the Public Health England, the World Health Organisation and both local and national governments on this matter and will keep the orienteering community updated as appropriate.
We know how great the sport is at supporting each other and we ask that you continue to pull together (albeit virtually) during this difficult time. We will do our best to get you back in the forests as soon as it is safe to do so.
Finally, we ask that you continue to follow the government's guidance on how to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Please stay safe and support each other during this hard time.

Saturday 28th December 2019, Xmas Charity Event (Level D, Local)
Hope you all enjoyed your post Christmas run in the sun (yes, sun!) today at Whittas Park. Results won't be published today due to a small technical problem with the map memory course. You're all patient people though, and some will remember having to wait weeks for them to arrive in the post! 😄
Thanks to Raymond and Jenny for organising it all, and providing fantastic post race food at Bothel Village Hall to raise money for Cumbria Blood Bikes. The total raised came to £420 - thank you for your generous donations.
Border Liners 50th Anniversary Dinner
HUGE thanks to the team of volunteers who worked so hard to make Border Liners 50th Anniversary Dinner such an extra special occasion. An excellent buffet meal was provided, the hall looked a treat with specially made bunting, the tables were elegant enough to grace a top class restaurant - and we even had BL themed chocolates!!
The club's inaugural meeting was held in November 1969 and the Anniversary Dinner took place at Bothel Village Hall on Saturday 23rd November 2019.
