As you would expect all formal SWOC events are cancelled until restrictions on travel etc are lifted. There is an archive of MapRun events in the cardiff area which can be done on an individual basis at any time. The pdf’s for the papermaps are in the Events-Maprun Archive tab on the Website or you can just use the maps on the MapRun App. I will endeavour to convert some older events to MapRun as well.
MapRun League results after 5 races with 1 race to go. Best 4 results. Only those with at least 3 results are included here. 75 different people have participated in at least 1 event. Next and final race of this series St Mellons Wed 18th March.

South Wales Orienteering Club is currently working towards the InSport ribbon, a standard which reflects the Clubs commitment to broadening opportunities for those with disabilities to access orienteering.
The InSport standards are a part of the broader InSport project, which aims to support physical activity, sport and leisure organisations to deliver provision inclusively of disabled people. SWOC is working on the first stage of the InSport journey, the ribbon.
The ribbon demonstrates that a club is monitoring for equal opportunities, that it has appropriate welfare and equality policies and that it is inclusive and equitable in its communications. It also requires a statement of inclusion which should articulate the organisation’s commitment to inclusivity.
The ribbon marks the first phase of a commitment to inclusivity, with the bronze, silver and gold standards following on from that.
There is now a page of MapRun Archive Events under the Events Menu with links to the pdf’s of the MapRun events we have put on so far. The phone maps are still available for download using the MapRun apps. You can now download and print the maps and go and run any events you might have missed.
SWOC is planning to put on monthly events in 2020 as well as a Christmas score on the 27th December. We are looking for people to plan / organise these events. The SWOC League Events will consist of 4 courses Blue, Green, Orange and Yellow with the capability of creating a Short Green course where possible. Support will be given to anyone inexperienced.
If you can help please let me know with your preferred option. At present there may be some flexibility with regard to dates and venues but I will be contacting landowners for permissions shortly.
The details of the events still requiring volunteers are as follows.
|2020||18th July||Sat||SWOC League 8||Mynydd y Gaer|
|2020||13th September||Sun||Welsh League||Llangattock|
|2020||29th November||Sun||SWOC League 10||Kingswood|

SWOC Fixtures secretary
Thanks to everyone who made the long trip to the Compassport cup final in Sussex last weekend. SWOC came 7th out of 12 small clubs in the Trophy competition. We were quite close to the 2 clubs above us but with only 19 runners and 13 to count there wasn’t much room for error. Our best scorers were Clare Dallimore and Gill Manning who both got 100pts, Matt Whipple with 98 and Anne May on 96. Next years final I think is in Birmingham so if we get through wont be as far to go.
