Autumn Urban Sprint Series, Events/Results

Aberdeen Uni Urban Sprint 30/9/15

Wow! That was a blast! Never-ending route choices and plenty of twists and turns not to mention furkling in bushes and round the back of buildings in the dark towards the end. A big thank you to our guest planner, Janne, for cramming so much fun onto a piece of A4 paper.

Funny how many of us switched off mentally just after the map change and went charging past a control which was more or less on a straight line between two others. We were so clued in to left, right, double back, left again by that stage that a straight line must have seemed just too easy to our fuddled brains so we dismissed it.

Results   Splits   Overall points (best 3 of 5 results)    Overall points by category

Overall joint winners of the Series and MOpen are Janne Heikkinen AUOC and Mark Stockton GRAMP with the maximum possible 150 points apiece. Mark managed to pull a win out of the hat at the last race to equal Janne’s tally, narrowly squeaking in with 10 seconds to spare over a certain Angel (I’m-not-feeling-too-good-I-probably-won’t-run-tonight) Iliev AUOC.

U16:     Alex Lang GRAMP and Olivia Coman GRAMP
J:          Jake Chapman MAROC  (and no WJ runners)
Open:  Janne Heikkinen AUOC/Mark Stockton GRAMP and Mikaela Kolistanikova AUOC
V:         David Kirk GRAMP and Rachel Scott GRAMP
SV:       Rob Hickiling GRAMP and Fiona/June/Fiona IND
Best Newcomers to orienteering: Kirsty Robson and Chris Cowley

If you didn’t pick up your prize last night, get in touch and we’ll arrange something – email Rachel on webmaster@grampoc.com.

Hope you enjoyed it all as much as I have and see you next Autumn?
