The first Saturday Series event was held on a full colour map at the always popular Ruffey Lake Park.  Despite the gloomy weather, the rain held off during the event, and a big crowd came along to enjoy navigating.  Russell’s well planned course had half the controls in the park itself; these were marked with bright tape. The remaining controls were in the surrounding streets.

Those on one-hour courses were challenged to visit all 20 controls, while the 45 minute course participants could stick to the park, or venture further afield if they chose to.  MapRun results show the top score on Run60 as 58, achieved by David P, Vic S, and Peter M; Deb S and Victoria G came very close on 57 points apiece. The top three all chose quite different routes, and different controls to drop. MapRun results Run60

There were over 30 competitors on Run45, which I think is a record! Ian D top scored with 50 points, next was Jim T on 46, then Katherine T and Mark B on 44. Again, MapRun shows a big diversity – a sign of great course setting! MapRun results Run45

Power Walkers had 65 minutes to grab as many points as possible.  Top scorer was Geoff A with 49 points, ahead of Lauris S on 47, and Ros K on 46. MapRun results PW65

Official results will be published, with scores added from competitors using control cards.
