Every year the school orienteering club holds a training weekend based at Coniston Holly How YH. After the poor weather in January this was the first time most of us had been out running this year. Fortunately, we were blessed with some lovely sunshine on Saturday as we ran through all the tourists at Tarn Hows. Sunday’s overcast weather dropped the temperature and the only way to keep warm was to keep running!
The pupils eligible for the World Schools Championships have been training hard for the selection races held over the British Schools weekend. This has involved some excellent technical training on Wednesdays after school. This training culminated in a weekend on Holme Fell, just north of Coniston, with Saturday night spent at Estwaithe YH.
