Autumn Urban Sprint Series, Events/Results

Autumn Urban Sprint Series 2013 Final Results

Thanks to all who came out on such a foul night for the last of the Urban Sprints, especially members of the newly reformed AUOC who are probably still wondering what hit them both meterologically, physically and mentally. Please believe us when we tell you it’s not always like that!

I did promise to be there armed with lavish prizes but it really wasn’t the night to be hanging about waiting to see folk and figure out who won in a couple of categories that were still potentially up for grabs.
I will bring prizes to the Street O events (shameless plug!) or you can email me at webmaster@grampoc.com to claim if you can’t make those events.

So – the final results….  I’ve been mulling over whether to award points as usual for Abz Uni or not. Dave’s event was so different from the rest and a bit of bad luck meant a disastrous time for the first leg for many and if anything, I should be awarding extra prizes for determination/pigheadedness to several folk who were hit really badly but still soldiered on.

Luckily, the overall prize winners were unaffected by the rogue results – as in there was no change from those I’d identified as leaders in the results after 4 events – so I’ve decided to include Abz Uni anyway in the Overall Results (but I’ve also added a second page for interest where I’ve awarded points based on adjusted times with the first leg subtracted as that was the real deal breaker for most).
