UK Elite Orienteering League
The JK Festival of Orienteering returns this Easter for the first time since 2019.Friday’s sprint around Swansea University and Singleton Park has been planned by Ben Mitchell and Megan Carter-Davies and they will be sure to have planned courses that challenge both your speed and your technique.We head out onto the moorland for Saturday’s middle distance and Sunday’s long. Clydach Terrace crams in a dense set of mineworkings covered in short grass. Your direction will need to be sharp to make sure you hit the right gap in the spoil heaps time after time.After roll-out and success of GPS tracking at the British Championships we are pleased to be bringing it to the JK for the first time. 20 men and 20 women will be tracked at the Middle and Long. If those being tracked could finish top 20 in the middle and then race the next day it would be really appreciated - no-one wants to faff to swapping GPSs.Pwll Du, previous host of the British Championships and JK Relays, is the venue for Sunday’s long distance.
