Congrats to Pete Lawrence and Anne Hickling for their 3rd places overall on M50S and W60S respectively after 2 days of tough and intricate orienteering in the Lake District.
Steep, rocky, muddy hillsides really sorted the sheep from the mountain goats. It was all too tempting to follow the muddy trods along the path of least resistance even though your brain was saying you needed to keep higher and really concentrate on ticking off the features.
Anne also found the energy and brain power to compete in the Temp O and Pre-O competitions narrowly missing a top 10 finish in the latter.
