The annual SROC club picnic takes place at Eaves Wood on Saturday July 11. Come along in good time for a 2pm mass start score event. There will also be a yellow and orange course for newcomers and juniors. Bring food and drink for a jacobs join picnic after the orienteering. Great social occasion and prize giving, not to be missed.

Several SROC foot orienteers have made the crossover into cycle-O, taking part in the series of two hour Tuesday evening score events which make up the Lanequest series. None has been more successful than Mary Ockenden who is currently lying in second place in the Women's Open class with two events left. Best 4 out of 6 count. For the league table click here.

It was not only SROC member Quentin Harding and brother Kevin (2nd in the Elite Class) and Karen Nash and Rowena Browne (1st female pair in B Class) who made a strong showing at his year's LAMM. This mountain marathon has strong associations with SROC. Organiser Martin Stone and Andrew Leaney of Sport Ident used to be club members. Rick and Angie Houghton always attend with the Compasspoint shop, and a few club members turn out every year to help - John and Sue Denmark, Frances Watkins, Dave and Val Johnstone and Brian Jackson were helping again this year, together with the club tent at the Day 1 finish. Read all about it in Brian's blog.

Following her win in the Stockport urban race yesterday (21st June) SROC runner Glenys Ferguson (pictured right in action at the Salt Ayre sprint O) has strengthened her position at the top of the W55+ table in the Nopesport Urban League. With another 5 races still to go, and the best 5 of 9 to count, let's hope Glenys can pull off a couple more wins over the Autumn. The next League race is in London in September; followed by Chester, Cambridge and Oxford, finishing with Sheffield in November. Links to men's and women's tables.

It came fine for the event after a day of torrential rain, but spare a thought for Bob & Matt putting the controls out in horrible conditions. Results are now available, as usual from the Results index (or using the Results link above). RouteGadget will follow as soon as possible.

The next Summer Series event is at Worden Park, Leyland on Wednesday 17th June. The final event is at Astley Park, Chorley on Wednesday 24th June. Please note that it is possible that the British Sprint Champs will be held in Astley Park and Chorley Town in 2010. If so, and you run on there on 24th June, you would be classed as non-competitive at the Sprint Champs (not that it makes much difference for most!)

The LAMM, a two-day mountan competition for pairs, is taking place this weekend in Scotland. SROC stalwart Quentin Harding is teamed with his brother Kevin on the Elite course and at the half-way stage they are lying 3rd, only 3 seconds short of 2nd place but over an hour behind the lead. They are the leading vet pair. Meanwhile fellow SROC committee members and LAMM (but not mountain marathon) newbies Rowena Browne and Karen Nash are leading female team on the B course. Keep in touch via the LAMM website.

The first event of the new series was enjoyed by many SROC regulars and a few guests from further afield. All were impressed by the newly extended map, and many appreciated the extra challenge of Sprint-O. Results, including Winsplits On-Line, Splitsbrowser and RouteGadget (add your route and compare with others) are all available via the Results index.
