And so to WEE 8... Come and join us at Valley Leisure Centre. The finish area for the event is a fantastic assembly area so if the sun is out why not consider a picnic. If you run early you can sit on the steps and watch everyone else finish whilst scoffing your banana.

There are the usual 2 courses, and lots more coaching available for those who want it. I believe there may be a few more cones out, but rumours that there will be more than on the M6 in Birmingham are unfounded. I will be helping out newcomers, and for the more experienced I will be looking at navigation with a shortish corridor course to help practice your skills for those who wish.

If you like exploring new areas and want a mental, as well as a physical challenge, then orienteering may be the sport for you. British orienteering is celebrating its 50th anniversary this weekend, and it's no longer just a sport for the countryside, as Mike Bushell discovered when he tackled a course just outside our studio here in Salford Quays.

Antrim Castle Routegadget now available for you to plot and discover whether your clever route choices were really that good or if your seeming dreadful mistake on leg 3 actually lost you that much time. I had handful of victims to tutor in the dark art of RG tonight using last week's event and all were surprised at how easy it was to do.
I'll be along to The Valley next week for more of the same.

If anyone wants a quick lesson on how to draw your course onto Routegadget, I will have a laptop with me at the Antrim WEE on Wednesday. We will use last week's event to demo/practice on. Bring your GPS watch and USB lead (if required) or your memory if you don't have a watch or even just your imagination and we'll make up a fantastic route.
Routegadget only takes a few minutes to do after an event and is a great way to learn from your mistakes and your victories.
