This weekend is your last opportunity to enter the British Long Distance and Relay Championships, taking place on 5 & 6 May, while entries for the Kendal Urban Race on 7 May (part of the Nopesport Urban League) close on 26 April.
After two tough days of orienteering, the result of the relays were quite likely to be a war of attrition over the course of the weekend rather than on the day itself, and so it proved with easy victories as Interlopers retained the men's title and Edinburgh University took the women's honours.
As expected Craig a'Barns on day 2 of the Jan Kjellström International Festival of Orienteering proved to be an even tougher test to competitors than day 1, with some long times across the board and only two men breaking the 90 minute barrier on the elite course.
For the first time in almost 15 years, Dunalastair played host to orienteering with the first full day of competition at the JK as two of the world's best, Scott Fraser and Linnea Gustafsson, showed their prowess through the tough Scottish forest and moorland.
JK 2012 in Scotland kicked off with a highly exciting sprint yesterday, with Livingston proving to be a fast and furious setting for orienteering races in which the leaders were separated by seconds, Sarah Rollins winning her third straight JK sprint title with Murray Strain pipping Scott Fraser by a second for a local win.
This Easter weekend almost 2,400 competitors from across the UK and Europe will descend on Scotland, Livingston and Perthshire to be more precise, for the Jan Kjellström International Festival of Orienteering 2012. For the first time this season almost all of the UK's top orienteers will be in attendance, so you can expect a tight competition across the board.

This weekend Edinburgh emerged victorious once again at the British University Championships with some tight battles and tough orienteering, but many fine performances were overshadowed by a controversial protest and disqualification in the relay.
