Glover’s Wood Results

Organiser’s Comments – Charlie Turner

The decision to hold this event happened in early July when Teresa and I were on a lockdown walk through Glovers Wood.  It looked fantastic and was crying out to be a replacement for the London City Race, which at that time was very much looking as it was going to be cancelled.   The bonus was discovering that Lidar data was available and amazingly land access permission was granted in an incredibly short time.   When a club request went out for a planner this was answered within 24 hours by Richard  who soon added  Ginny and son Ed to make up a family team.   In mid July we had a five person zoom meeting to work out how we would structure the event around the Covid19 restrictions. Things were more complicated than I had initially imagined and our meeting ran to just under two hours.  The new map survey was largely completed by the end of July and things were now well under way.  Gordon handled all the SI matters with amazing ability and introduced lots of innovative functions, which included being able to pre enter from the field up to 12.30 yesterday! 

Specific thanks must go to our controller, Paul Todd who offered lots of valuable suggestions and made sure we were all doing the right things.

Lastly we must thank the weather  for being so brilliant for the whole day and you all for adhering to social distancing etc.  Yesterday the farmer met up with me at about 4.30 in the field and as for all orienteering events it was litter free.  Thank you!

Planner’s Comments – Richard Catmur

Thank you for all the (mostly kind!) feedback on my courses. Certainly they may have seemed a little long after the recent “shutdown” but I see that the winning times are all close to the target times. One competitor even said that he wished he had done a longer course!

I would like to say sorry to those competitors stung by the hornets. Obviously we were aware of the nest and had planned for the warning signs; however on our previous visits the hornets were nowhere near as active as they were on the race day. We suspect that the sunshine and the presence of many runners going past made them much more active and it seems that at this time of year they are very protective of their young and object to being disturbed. Obviously we should all learn a lesson from this and take note to keep courses further away from such nests in the future.

Night Series Results 2019-2020

Final results of the night series are published below. Due to the curtailment of the series, overall results are based on the best 2 scores. Congratulations to our series winners:

  • Short – Sarah Darley (female and overall champion) and Phil Conway.
  • Long – Aimee Darley. There was a 3 way tie for the men between Adam Conway, Ed Catmur & Matthew Vokes.

We will sort you out with well deserved prizes at some point.

The series couldn’t happen without the hard work and dedication of our Organiser/Planners, huge thanks to Sue, Pete, Don, Dave and Duncan.

It’s never too early to start thinking of the next series, it would be great to have some fresh faces – do get in touch () if you’re interested in getting involved.

Wimbledon Common Night-O

Organiser’s Report

The Wimbledon Common Night-O (actually on Putney Heath) attracted 57 entries, in total about 65 people given those participating in pairs or threes. 

Although the weather was not as rainy as forecast, the going underfoot was decidedly “heavy”, with depressions being ponds and many paths being ditches.  I intended that the courses be somewhat easier than for the usual night-O but many competitors seemed to disagree.

Despite recovering from his marathon at the weekend, Ed Catmur (SLOW) narrowly won the Long course from Matthew Vokes (DRONGO), with Aimee Darley (SN) the leading female. 

On the Short course, Callum Gilhooley & Ben Toogood (SLOW) together lead the field with Sarah Darley (GO) beating the other ladies.

Thanks are due to the usual suspects for their assistance, without which these events simply would not happen.

Results, Splits and Race Reports can also be found on the BMBO website.

Holmbury St Mary

We returned to The Royal Oak for the third time in four years but with a different map area and a 3 hour SAF course. It made good use the dense network of trails around Pitch Hill, Holmbury Hill and Leith Hill. There was heavy rain the night before the event which made the course very muddy. The rain continued for most riders but the later starters saw sun and bright autumnal skies.

Radnage

This was a new area for SLOW and surprisingly hilly with loads of great riding. Congratulations to Ifor Powell for winning the overall event. Radnage Village Hall provided an ideal event base. Despite having cancelled a couple of events this year, there is still hot competition for 2020 Series places as we head for the final event of the season.

Effingham

August saw the return of our events with Jane’s course around the North Downs near Effingham. We able to take in many of the fantastic views all around using the standard format course on an A3 1:25,000 map. We had a record turnout and it is great to see everyone back at events. There was plenty of room on the playing fields to spread out.

Thursley

Our first event was based at The Three Horseshoes pub in Thursley and covered the fantastic area around Thursley Common, Hankley Common and the Devil’s Punch Bowl. Navigation proved tricky as there were trails all over the place. The forecast rain went elsewhere and although there were some muddy sections most of the trails had a good surface well suited to all year riding .

Series Prizes

Series prizes are presented to the top 3 finishers in the each following category: Men’s Vets (50+), Women’s Vets (50+) , Men’s Seniors (18-49) , Women’s Seniors (18-49), Juniors (Under 18).

To be eligible for prizes, participants must have attended at least 2 events. Course planners are credited for the events they plan with the average of their best 2 event results.
