Check your result Event Report – West Tech With the return of pleasant weather, it was great to see participation numbers back to a reasonable level for the West tech event last Thursday. Course setter, Hayley O couldnt be there on the night but those that were there had plenty of navigational challenge to mull over. Thanks Hayley. In one of our most comical events we’ve ever had in A grade, there was not one, not two, but 3 of our regular runners that miscounted the numbers of controls needed and returned one control short. A special shout out to Luke H. Having realised his mistake he headed out again to get that extra control. only to realise on his second return that he had in fact been 2 controls short first time around – Doh !! All had a good laugh. Meanwhile Tony McR was able to make this his own Steven Bradbury moment to be the first home with the correct number of controls, ahead of Sam V. Luke H, Andrew T and Toby C can only dream about what could have been …. In a strong B grade field, Sarah L was first in from Ed and Helen S. Checking the MapRun results showed that Don F had the superior route choice on the night but his leg speed wasnt enough to make up the difference with these front runners. It was good to see Lee W back in action as well. It was great to see young Angus S back for his second StreetO run ever. His leg speed assured he was first home in C grade and it wont be long before his navigational choices are honed, reaping further reward. Chelsea F was next in, followed by Damian W. No one chose D grade this time around. The walking saw the resumption of the friendly family battle of last summer, with Bernard K and Ben K both finishing on 69 points. There was then a gap to the following pack of Fiona K (62 pts), Tom F, Elna E, Linden Y (all on 61 pts) and Jane S and Leanne S (both on 59 pts). Full results are on the website. We now look ahead to 7pm Thursday 21/11 at Aldershot Reserve, St Albans. Course setter Sofie vG is back in town and prepared a course that takes full advantage of the natural features in this area. Remember to charge your phone. If you would like to run a bit but dont feel up to running all the way, make sure that you enter say C or D grade. In this you can walk or run as much as you like. If you enter the walking, no running is allowed. Looking for a big number this week – lock it into your calendar now and spread the word. All details on the website.
