Pete’s turn on the podium @ Trofeo Sevilla O-Meeting

Having “done” Venice, Barcelona and Rome in previous years, we looked at either Antwerp or Sevilla for our autumn City O Break this year and the lure of tapas, beautiful medieval streets and the chance to practice our Spanish again swung it. (Sorry, Antwerp!)

3 very different O races to help justify all that tapas – a Middle distance in spaghetti western territory on Saturday morning, a Night Sprint round a small but complicated city park on Saturday evening including a string of tricky controls in the multi-levelled buildings of the Plaza de Espana before dodging the horse-drawn carriages to reach the finish, and then the grand finale of an Urban around those beautiful medieval streets on Sunday morning where an early start was a distinct advantage before the pavement cafes started sprouting up and the “Pullmans” of touristas started clogging the pavements.

The 1st and 3rd race times were combined to give the placings for the overall Trofeo Sevilla O-Meeting and Pete gained his place on the podium as 3rd M50. As well as the certificate – a great cartoonish mix of flamenco dancer and O map by a local artist – he won 500ml of olive oil but sadly had to leave it behind as we only had hand luggage.

  1. Congratulations Pete, well run! Your calves must have been kind to you…

    P.S. I didn’t realise Seville was in the southern hemisphere?! 🙂
