HAWKSHEAD

Every November the Junior Regional Orienteering Squads organise a weekend of training for 15 and 16 year olds in the Lake District. In 2017 this will be held on the last weekend in November . We stay at Hawkshead Youth Hostel. Food and bed inclusive . Cost £80 each. This weekend is open to selected  M /W 16 year olds . Participants will be selected subject to their commitment to squad training sessions ,orienteering events and performance.

We will leave on Friday afternoon and return on Sunday afternoon having trained on three different areas and taken part in a sprint night race on Saturday night after dinner.
2013 saw us training on Esthwaite Intake, Great Tower and Tarn Howes. As usual it was a really good weekend and the weather was very cold but dry.
2014 we trained on Bishops Wood,Holme Fell and Dale Park...an awesome weekend with fantastic weather and views.
