Latest news

String course results


The string course results are now published and linked from the results page..

New items of lost property found from Day 1


We have had some more lost property handed in from Leeds University staff, listed at the top of the lost property page.

Dog found at Wass (Day 2)


A Black and Tan smooth-haired Jack Russell has been found on the Wass area today. It is possible that it was lost by an orienteer at the weekend. It seems well cared for and very friendly. If this is your dog please reply to enquiries2016@thejk.org.uk to arrange return. If not claimed, the dog will be taken to Thirsk Animal Rescue.

Lost property update


There is enough lost property to warrant it having it's own page, so have a look if you have lost something.

Maps, photos and officials


There are maps available for most courses on Days 1 to 3. If you entered but did not run and you would like a map please email enquiries2016@thejk.org.uk and we will send you one if we have one. 

There are links to more photos now posted on the Photos page.

If you were wondering who all the people were working behind the scenes (or in front of them) to make JK2016 happen, the list of officials is here



So that concludes the JK for 2016. We hope you enjoyed yourselves in Yorkshire and come back soon. Congratulations to all winners, special thanks to the army of volunteers who helped make it possible and for the weather for not being 48 hours earlier.

All results are now up on the various sites.

There are already quite a few links to photos. If you have photos to link please email photos@claro-orienteering.org.uk.

There is a large pile of lost property. This will be sorted out, listed and posted here tomorrow. If you have lost or found something please email enquiries2016@thejk.org.uk with details. We might even set up Okit reunited.

There are maps for many courses on most days, both not taken or unclaimed after map collection. Details will be posted here soon once they are all collated in one place. Some of them might not have mud on.
