Mt Beckworth kicks off the Autumn Bush Series

The Autumn Bush Series got underway on Sunday with the first event at Mt Beckworth, which also featured the Eureka Challenge. After a very wet Saturday the organisers were holding their breath that Sunday would bring better weather, and luckily for all the sun started to shine shortly before the first start.

It was obvious that many people were still in sprint mode and winsplits shows a lot of pink cells on all courses indicating that very few people had a clean run. Congratulations go to Clare and Roch who had no pink cells on the harder courses. Also click on the bonus content link for Course 1 to see interesting Pack Running and Head to Head analysis.

Hopefully everyone has now got back into Bush Orienteering mode and cleaner runs will be achieved over the Easter events.

The winners are:
Open (course 1): Patrick Jaffe
W2: Clare Brownridge
M2: Andrew Barnett
W3: Jenny Bourne
M3: Mason Arthur
M4: Peter Dalwood
W5: Alison Radford
M5: Tim Dent
W6: Sylvia Murphy
M6: Barry Sampson
W7: Sophie Taverna
M7: John Steer
W8: Sophie Arthur
M8: Henry Neylon
W9: Angelina Kozma
M9: Neo Kozma
