SOME 70 competitors made their way to Bourne Wood on Saturday for an orienteering race.

Lincoln Orienteering Group organised the event as the final part of its six-race winter series.

Both novice and veteran competitors had the option of completing a 2.5km short course or 6km course.

Chairman Sean Harrington said he was “very pleased” with the turnout.

“We’re trying to get people to come and support it,” he said. “They can have a go and see what it’s like.”
