Autumn Urban Sprint Series, Events/Results

Autumn Urban Sprint Balgownie 7th Sept

Thank you Gordon for a much appreciated course judging by the buzz of conversation comparing routes at download and a few “DOH!” head slaps too as folk realised they’d missed a trick.

Quite a few mispunches not least punching 6 instead of 16 in the mad rush to get to the finish although the two very similar numbers in close proximity could easily be confused especially if you had your map tightly folded. It pays to check your numbers especially when they come thick and fast.
Maybe we should start producing separate control descriptions for the Sprint events? What do you think?

RG sorry but I couldn’t get the georeferenced version of the map to show the course in any shape or form so it’s a bodged version which may not allow you to upload a GPS track and you may have to resort to drawing your course on the old fashioned way (which will at least make you think twice about where you went and wonder why you went in some cases.)

What I have successfully managed to do is calculate some points.

M/WJU16 = Under 16s shadowed
M/WJ = 16 to 20
M/W Open = 21 to 35M/WV = Vets 40+
M/WSV = Supervets 55+
M/WUV = Ultravets 65+

Best 3 of 5 scores count towards your total.

If I’ve mispelled names or clubs or age classes or you want to run up in the Open rather than your designated class then let me know on webmaster@grampoc.com.
