ASPLEY HEATH, WOBURN SANDS RESULTS
Club members were able to go orienteering this weekend at one of the only races in the UK not cancelled due to snow. The South Midlands Orienteering Club decided to go ahead with the fixture on Sunday in the woods at Aspley Heath, Woburn Sands, near Milton Keynes. Running through the several inches of snow in places did not deter and proved very popular.
David Lawson M55 won the 9.3km course with 250 metres of climb in 73.37mins and his daughter Harriet Lawson W21 was 4th, top women, in 76.52mins. Chris McCartney M45 also clocked up a first place taking 64.36mins on the 7.6km course. Lesley Ross W50 was 4th in 55.41mins on the 6.2km course. Pete Carey M70 was 2nd in 45.51mins and Sheila Carey W70 6th in 48.27mins both on the Green 4.2km course.
