It’s a fortnight already since I popped over to Lilleshall to partake of a slice of this year’s British Orienteering coaching conference. The day got progressively more active, starting off with lectures about training, followed by a coaching workshop and then after lunch we worked out down on the soccer pitches.

All useful stuff, but BOF chief executive Mike Hamilton saying that he knows nothing about orienteering did get on my tits a bit. He’s been in post for four years!
