Congratulations to Andrew Stemp for his convincing victory in the second Photo-O. He got all the controls right and drew his course up very well. Thanks to all the entrants - there were quite a lot - for your support and kind comments. I am turning my attention to MapRun now.

Six Urban/Parkland Long Sprint Events
We are running a series of 6 events open for participation at any time during the relevant week to be included in the results. To adhere to current social distancing rules the events will be operated on the Maprun system so there is no infrastructure - you use the app to track your run and register your time.
Each week there will be 2 courses. A Long Sprint course with an expected 25-30 minute winning time for experienced orienteers and a shorter course suitable for Newcomers.
