Stoke Rochford’s Tanya Taylor has enjoyed a lot of a success in a short space of time.

Just three years after she started orienteering, Tanya has won five titles over the past 12 months.

The first was the East Midlands Urban League which is contested by clubs from Lincoln, Nottingham, Leicester and Derby. This was a series of events around towns in the East Midlands which included Lincoln, Stamford, Ashby and Chesterfield. Tanya achieved maximum points in each of the four events.

Her second title was the NopeSport trophy. This was a national league with events taking place all over the country. The best scores from seven out of the 16 events were taken into account and, once again, Tanya was a comfortable winner of her age group.

Thirdly, Tanya won the East Midlands rural league with events taking part in the woods and over the moors around the four counties.

The other two titles came courtesy of her own orienteering club’s winter and night-score competitions. Added to the titles, Tanya achieved a national ranking of sixth in her age group.
