Maroc at Jukola 2014

Maroc sent two teams to Jukola 2014 with a 42 year age spread between oldest and youngest.
Team 1: M20; M20; W21; W18; M16; M55; M50 put in an overall time that would have placed 255th and top British…but there was also an unfortunate mp though.
Team 2: M40; M35; W45; M18; M16; M50; M45 closed out in about 503rd. This in a field of about 1600 teams.
Full results and plenty of other information including videos.
Some photos are in the Picture Gallery - more will be added later this week

Club coaches needed

We are currently needing more club coaches to help at our regular training sessions.  To qualify as a UKCC Level 1 coach you need to be able to complete Light Green courses at a certain standard and then attend a 3 day course (usually at the National Centre, Glenmore Lodge) which includes assessment.
The courses are intensive but very worthwhile and good fun.
Further details are available at

Maroc covers all cost of the course – in return for expecting qualified coaches to plan at least 2 training sessions a year for 2 years (mentoring and help is available).

If you are interested please check out the SOA site or speak to any of the existing club coaches.
