Teenager wins orienteering in Oxfords University Parks

Bethany Kippin has navigated her way successfully across Oxfords University Parks. On Sunday, the orienteering event was arranged by Thames Valley Orienteering Club and it included 6 different courses, starting from a course for beginners to the most challenging job.

Thirteen year old Bethany, who is a student at the Headington School, participated in the most difficult course. Later she stated that the course was very long and involved a lot of criss crossing throughout the park. Still, this was quite interesting to go around houses as well as Oxford Universitys science area that one could not normally do.

She added that the river had also overflowed and that was the trickiest part. Kippin has been selected for England Orienteering squad and she would represent the nation in March in France. The resident of Chalgrove stated that she is really looking forward to this and it would be the very 1st team he had represented. Speaking about this adventure sport, she state that orienteering is exciting because this is a cross between geography and cross country running, as you need to do map reading.

Meanwhile, 2 youngsters from Bath scooped top prizes at Southern Orienteering Championships 2014. It was a run in pouring rain near Bracknell. WASPS snatched 2 medals as Edith Stagg won 2.8 kilometer girls’ race in 45:07 while Bryony, her sister, came 3rd spot in 57:35.
