Forget Glasto – The Action was at the Tollymore O Festival

The results are in from the urban league event at Newcastle and the Colour Series at Meelmore, all part of LVO’s annual Tollymore Festival of Orienteering.

With both events missing any rain and in generally warm conditions an excellent challenge was presented by planner Fionne Austin and George Savell. Both planners to use less familiar parts of the map with senior courses in Newcastle going north before jaunting along the prom and finishing at Island Park. At Meelmore senior courses headed east over or around Lukes Mountain to criss-cross intricate rock detail. Thanks to all our officials Fionne Austin, Steph Pruzina and Sharon Dickinson at Newcastle and George Savell, Des Fletcher and Sarah Knight and all helpers.

The results for both events are at Results>2023 Results with analysis including RouteGadget for both Newcastle and Meelmore.

Now just over the half-way point in the 2023 NI Colour Series League has also been updated by Alan Gartside. No competitor has acheived the maximum 400 points to secure a win, so there is all to play for in the autumn.

Enjoy the summer and local events and activities on the Fixture List until the next Colour Series Event at Portstewart on 2 September.
