Another good turnout for a Wednesday Evening event. Thanks to those competitors on the Long and Short (called Medium on the Map) courses who allowed me to recycle their map.
The weather was better than forecast and we only got a little wet putting out the controls – the holly bushes (guess you remember them) gave us cover when it did rain.
I hope you all enjoyed the Maze. It was meant to make you slow down to think but did not have much effect on Harrison and Ondrej who were fastest in the maze on the long course or Tom Lea who whizzed round it on the Short.
Thanks to Nadine for the initial idea and design and Bruce for completing it and patrolling you efforts.
I have tried to separate out the Maze times in the results starting from the run from the previous control to the one you went to after it. I thought it would let you know how well you would have done without it.
There were also several enthusiastic Yellow course runners who also completed the separate Maze course. Sorry I have not included any results but the timing got a bit chaotic in that area so thought it best to not have any results rather than miss people. The fastest I found was Freya Lang in 5.51Mins.
Thanks to my control collectors, Janet Richardson, Bob Brandon, John Middler and Irene Rogers.
Finally a special thanks to two non-orienteers
Nick Wright who helped put out all the controls and was behind the neatness of the Maze. He is really a golfer and you may have noticed the maze was held together with golf tees!
Sharon Maxted (Her daughters used to run for King Henry’s) without whom the event could have ground to a halt with so many competitors. It’s OK when people are just registering or downloading but in the middle trying to do both definitely needs two or more people especially to match the results with entry slips so we know when everyone is back.
