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.

Hankley Results

Here are the results for the OK Nuts Trophy races on Hankley Common on Sunday November 24th 2019. These was also the 2019 South-East Long Distance Championships. We were also pleased to be hosting the Royal Logistics Corps Championships.

Planners Comments – Simon Moss

My principal aim when planning is to make the courses fun and Hankley with its wonderful fast terrain is not difficult to plan for fun.  I tried my best to keep you in the forest and out of the rough open heather and off the paths for the technical courses as much as possible. I hope you felt I succeeded.

I was helped by Dave Peel’s largely resurveyed map. It was the first time that the area used the LIDAR data so it enabled me to use some sites as the data allows the ground to be mapped more accurately and brings out some of the nuances of the area that weren’t previously shown.

It’s always difficult to thank everyone involved but from my perspective, I’d like to thank Clive Caffall my controller for his help and advice. Andy and Karen Jones, Ian Moran, Paul Couldridge and Dorte Torpe Hanson who helped put out all the controls were fantastic, as were the collectors who are too many to mention. SLOW is very lucky to have so many keen, reliable and capable members

Richmond Park Night-O results

Thanks to The Albert for hosting our race in Richmond Park this evening. And thanks to Sue Carter for planning and organizing.

Planner’s Comments

Thanks to everyone who came out to run in the first Night-O of the
season. I hope you enjoyed your runs.

It can be tricky planning on an area we use quite often. I managed to
find a few control sites we’ve not used before and put in as many legs as I could with some route choice. I hope it provided a good challenge for you.

The deer had been quite frisky in the weeks leading up to the event. One stag in particular was guarding a site I wanted to put a control on. Bellowing at me, each time I went near it. I decided to give that site a miss and put that control somewhere else. Although the deer do seem to calm down as the nights close in more quickly. I hope the deer didn’t give anyone any trouble.

And big thanks to the people who helped me with the event. Gordon,
Steve, Sarah, Paul S, Paul C and Lulu. Their help made the event run smoothly.

See you at an orienteering event again soon.

Results from the 12th London City Race

Results from the 12th London City Race which took place in the City of London on Saturday 21 September 2019, have now been published.

Update 1 (Sunday evening): The results were first published on Saturday evening and have been updated/finalised on Sunday evening. Note that Routegadget lists the preliminary results.

Update 2 (Tuesday lunchtime): The Men’s Ultravets course and results are now correctly shown on Routegadget.

Amendments to results
Unfortunately a number of courses were affected by the unexpected blocking of a road for part of the morning.  The legs which were impacted by this have been removed from the results:
Course 1  Leg 24-25, Course 2  Leg 17-18, Course 3  Leg 25-26, Course 4  Leg 13-14, Course 5  Leg 23-24, Course 7  Legs 2-3 and 3-4, Course 11 Legs 7-8 and 8-9. We hope that this didn’t affect your run too badly. We are also aware that the Women’s Elite map had part of the control descriptions obscuring a possible route choice – our apologies for this. Alan Rosen (Controller)

Partner Events

Results from the Friday campus sprint that kicked off the London City Race Weekend at Middlesex University, are published by organisers London Orienteering Klubb here. Results from the Greenwich Park and Urban Race which closed the weekend are on the DFOK website.

Elthorne Park Results

Thanks to everyone who came to the final park race of the series.

The two areas used are maybe not the most challenging technically but with the bends of the river, and the depth after a bit of rain, the skill level required increases. Also a unique feature of both parks is how close you are to major transportation (M4 and Piccadilly Line) and yet in a navigational world of your own!

Boston Manor House is well worth a visit once renovation work is complete and we have to thank Linda Massey for her support in using the area.

Additional thanks from me go to our helpers on the night: Don McKerrow, Sue Carter, Steven Clelland and Ralph Dadswell, as well as Vicky Whaley, my neighbour Chris, Gordon Parker and John Owens for ensuring I was able to get the equipment to the right places at the rights times without a car. Of course Fiona Tam also put in a power of effort on the night making sure that the series results were correct and updated and of course managing to coordinate another successful park race series.

Park Race Series – Nine Summer Evening Orienteering Races

Look forward to seeing everyone either at the City Race of for the start of the night and street-o series.

You will see some bizarre numbers in the splits files, sorry. Some of the controls were out due to me synchronising them to the wrong master station.
