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.
Pre Event Info
On the Sprint Course there will be 3 SI controls numbered,1, 2,and 3, which will be visited in that order. They will be placed on random controls throughout the course. They must be punched, or sadly, you will be disqualified. All other controls need only be visited closely. We don't encourage touching of the controls by hand while covid is with us.
