Orienteers from the Military League North viewed RAF Leeming in a new light when they took part in the station’s first competition.

The event attracted more than 100 competitors from across the region to navigate their way round three courses designed to challenge experienced orienteers as well as those trying the sport for the first time.

It was organised by Sqn Ldr Rachel Sullivan and Chris Poole who are based at the North Yorkshire base.

The event focused on the urban side of the sport which provides intense navigation and challenges a different set of skills.
