Thank you for coming to experience the variety of urban terrain that Colton has to offer. I hope you feel it was worth braving the rain showers to enjoy that brilliant rainbow during or after your run. It was lovely that so many of you stayed around afterwards in the evening sunshine to chat and compare maps – almost like old times!

I tried to plan a good number of route choice legs, where it was equal distance both ways round. I look forward to seeing on routegadget which you chose. The trick was not to hesitate, just commit to a route with no regrets! Sorry that the site of the first SI control was a bit obscured by a badly parked van – we’ve reinstated those who were there but didn’t spot it.

Big thanks to Paul and Andrew for collecting in controls. And thanks to David for dealing with payments and download.

Club Photo-O Champs, Middleton Woods

M Woods Photo O Course


A SIX way tie.
Burden retains some crumbs of the Fat Rascal, but has to share the rest with Stemp, Williams, Jones and Parkers. A late entry from Steve Webb was the only all correct answer, but he loses a point for missing the deadline.

Many thanks to everyone who had a go at this.
Entries were very good - only a few errors to my surprise.
Trophies to be awarded at the next club get together, if Betty's allows.

Ski photo-O on Ilkley Moor RESULTS!

Im Photo O Jan2021 7500 01

Tie for top spot between David Williams, Peter Jones, Chris Burden and Christine Roberts. David and Peter got all the controls right, but lost marks for course drawing. The planner also allocated fairly random handicaps based on distance from the event.

Congrats to all the entrants. The Fat Rascal remains uneaten and will be decided by the Middleton Woods event.
