Jon X:
I am sure I am not the only one surprised by that - long overdue, congrats on your achievement!!
Suitable celebrations in the Tullie household this evening I imagine...

Well done and well deserved

To be fair I don't often run at the British as it tends to clash with lambing time. This year was relatively close , it was a good area and lambing has gone well - it would have been a shame not to go. Beer went down well :-)

I thought you meant first time you'd won that class trophy at the prize giving! Hope it's the first of many...

Well done Jethro - a very impressive run given the time of year.

...having been at the wrong end of plenty of beatings in most of those 50 years I thought maybe this year I could get a wee bit closer. How wrong can you be. Brilliant.

Very well done John!

"My first British title after 50 years of orienteering"...individual title :-). You wouldn't of course forget White Downs and 1976..skittles with beer cans and sitting on a helicopter rotor blade on the London to Edinburgh express. That was maybe the very but hardly of the same calibre!

... back in the day when the British Junior Champs was a separate event. I remember it well - I still have the map and results booklet. I was 6th on M17 (out of a class of 75!) behind Nev Myers, David Bradley, Don Hill, Chris Hirst and "Hilary" Beck and EUOC won the team prize with a certain Bruce McDowall(14th) and Roger Coombs (15th)completing the team. We also played conkers on the train with chestnuts we had gathered at the event and the laces out of our running shoes. Memories............... :-)

... just been looking at the results again - DonP was 17th, Dixie was 26th, Graham McIntyre was 48th and Gross was 55th!
