Members’ Training Day

Sat 11th April – All Welcome

All LEI members are invited to a training day using one of the best East Midland areas, Longshaw Estate, Derbyshire. The skill development exercises will include contour interpretation with individual guidance from LEI coaches Peter Hornsby and Mark Hardy.

This is an ideal opportunity to improve your skills on terrain which Leicestershire cannot provide. Sessions will run alongside the East Midland Junior Squad and suit both those still learning the basics up to the most experienced and competitive orienteers.

Details and times are yet to be fixed – Check Forthcoming Activities for updates.

Please email Chris Bosley () if you are interested in coming so that we can prepare enough maps.

Less than four months after the 2014 Midlands Championships LEI members were back defending their titles at Haywood Warren on Cannock Chase.

LEI Champions were:

Harrington Leake (M10)

Ethan Tebbutt (M14)

Imogen Wilson (W16)

Finn Lydon (M16)

Glynn Smith (M70)

Other members ran well including Ian Wilson who won the hotly contested M45S and Eric Porter retaining his M70S title. It was good to see some of our newer members competing at a level A event.
