Events/Results, Summer Forest Sprint Series

Forest Sprint Series 2015 Fridays 10th April to 15th May

Sprint O is great fun – lots of controls in quick succession in a relatively short distance and fast running alone is no use in this discipline if it’s of the headless chicken variety! You really have to look closely at the map, make snap decisions about route choice, execute them quickly and cleanly while all the time trying to read a jiggling map and watch where your feet are going. Give it a go.

Overall results

One course TD3 or Orange standard, about 3km, with lots of controls and route choice in a relatively small area so full on concentration required just as much as fleet feet. Great for developing Juniors too if accompanied by a TD3 standard runner. Best 4 scores out of 6 will count towards the FSS league results. Overall results can be found on the MAROC website. Registration: 18:00 to 18:50 Starts: 18:30 to 19:15 Fees: £4 Senior, £2.50 Junior/Student For a poster to display at work or wave under the noses of interested friends and tempt them along click here. .
