Portugal Orienteering Meeting, 2017, Phil & Adele Newall

This year it was situated in the Portalegre/Crato area about 2 hours northeast of Lisbon and is one the first big international orienteering meetings of the year and includes a World Ranking event. Thus, it attracts a very high quality field (over 1,000 Scandinavians), 36 countries represented in total (including over 70 Brits) amongst the 2,500 competitors.

Great terrain, fantastic maps and a world-class field, coupled with good weather - you can't go wrong!

British Night Championships, 2015, Phil & Adele Newall

For Phil, a long trip back from Kazakhstan on Friday preceded the drive up to Leeds from Cornwall on the Saturday. The competition area was a forested park, with some large open areas, and also as a bit of a novelty, a recently decommissioned golf course!
