The mini race was excellent. A big enough field to make it exciting and (the bit I was worried about) none of them had seen an orienteering map more than a couple of times before - and many of them not at all. That they all made it round the course successfully and in a fast time is an amazing tribute to the power of group decision-making, assisted by a few guiding hands. Key features were:

The senior races had a more select (i.e. smaller) field, but still plenty enough to make it fun for all. Charlie Whetham and Jeff Green vied for the lead the whole way on the 10k, until Charlie’s superior speed finally told. Complete novice Sandra Blenkinsop took the ladies prize and remained coy about who she was following; I just know Colin Gray can run faster than that.

The 6k race was a runaway win for regular Mike Elliot. Tyrone Weller’s second place may have been helped by support from his scout group, as he probably heard them all the way across the park!! We were also very impressed by the international flavour of the field. I hope they are equally impressed by our spelling.

The next race is at Box Hill on 3rd April (11am starts)  and then at Peaslake on 1st May (starts about 1.30p.m. as it follows the World Cup orienteering races there in the morning).

Keep checking the websites (for 3rd April) for the Peaslake Race and also orienteering in Battersea Park on 2nd May (World Cup Sprint races and then everyone else having a go)

and then our summer evening series starts on 24 may at the Hawker Centre

Thank you all for coming
