This year the Ward Junior Home International will be held in Wales on the weekend 07/08 October.
The selectors have spent a considerable amount of time looking at results and discussing the performances of all individuals. The competition for the twenty-four spaces on the squad has been very strong and shows the increasing strength of the entire Irish Junior Squad. There have been several close and tough decisions made.
As a reminder to those wishing to be selected for ANY of the races JHI/ JWOC/ EYOC, we recommend that you run the Elite courses if applicable to your age. This makes it easier for us to compare runs. The selection races will be announced near to the end of 2017, as will the date for the Time Trial. Please let me know ASAP if there are reasons for you not to attend the time trials or selection races.
I would like to wish those selected, the VERY best of luck, and I’m looking forward to a great weekends orienteering.
To those not selected- keep going, eyes up, catch those features, enjoy your orienteering, your time will come. Promise.
