Autumn Urban Sprint Series, Events/Results

Autumn Urban Sprint Series 2012

Another great little series again this year thanks to good planning and enthusiastic competitors with some very keen competition at the top of the league between various M18/M20/M21s and one or two older Ms with youthful legs. Calum McLeod and Naomi Lang had the Junior side sewn up and Carolyn McLeod met her match in newcomer to the sport if not the area, Ruth Crewe (Cosmics).

As well as the GRAMP Urban stalwarts we also had several incomers join the league half way through (studying or working in the area this year) and if they had been able to attend more events then the leader board would probably look vastly different. Unfortunately we can’t really delay the start of the Urban Series to accommodate Uni term time as it’s already pretty dark by 7pm even early October and we run the risk of becoming an Urban Night League (although I bet we’d get lots of takers for that anyway as everyone seems to enjoy it so much – even those who aren’t uber-competitive and laugh the whole way round (you know who you are, Blaggers!!)).

Autumn Urban 2012 Final League Results   

*Five people didn’t punch control no.9 (E thicket, inside west part). It was well described and I think they didn’t look in quite the right place. Their split times show that they did search around a bit! The results don’t show them as mispunched as we’re feeling generous…

***************************************************************************

Westburn Park was done as map memory as it’s such a small area. Unfortunately the long legs were cropped so that it wasn’t obvious there are entrances to the Victoria Park side at east and west ends and a lot of folk were seen legging it over the uncrossable walls and fences on either side of the main road. Do you know the difference in the symbols and why they’re marked as such? How can we spread the word to newcomers to urban O?
