I remember running the first version of the sprint course 362 days ago, a couple of months into the first lockdown, and not thinking this event would ever happen, but I'm very pleased that a year on it has! I tried to plan the sprint course so that there were sections with a bunch of short fast legs with a little terrain variability, along with genuine route choice legs - for 10-11, I think taking the northern route is best! I saw a few Deer bounding past the start/finish which was unexpected, as is the great panoramic view from the top of the hill, which I hope you all managed to look up and see whilst running your courses, I think it's a lovely little park! Thanks to Paul for helping collect controls and David for SI and entries.
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.
