Christmas MapRun reminder

A reminder that this Thursday (12th Dec) is the 3rd in our series of MapRun events. This time a Christmas special based in Shirley, Southampton. Run, jog, walk, use it as a training run, as orienteering practice or just come up for the social! All welcome. 

MapRun is 45-minute score format with the option to use a smartphone for notification when you are at one of the "virtual controls". A surprise Christmas score challenge will also be available! Afterwards, we'll head to Santo Lounge for a post run social and map chat!

Thanks Terry and Simon for getting the results posted so promptly and for your help.
Thanks to Mary for organising with Di's help on the night, and to  Kevin, Mike and Roger in putting out and getting in controls. The area is testing for a night event and I was pleased that 31 came and gave it a go. I knew it would be very hard to to get optimum route and get all the controls in the hour, and so it proved  Well done to Rob Finch - pity you didn't notice the control at Janesmoor Pond - a site impossible to use during the day, because of the proximity to the public car park, Colin Hicks - planner.

Organiser's Comments

Sunshine, mud and plenty of wet areas - well isn't that why we all love orienteering! I hope competitors enjoyed the day.

Thanks to the planner Norman Wilson for some fast, runnable courses in a nice part of the forest and to the SOC members who helped to ensure that the event ran so smoothly. 

A special mention to Veronica Barrette who having forgot her 'o' shoes ran the green course in her red 'wellies' finishing in a very respectful 8th place.
