Gala Policies – Night Event 2

Results from tonight’s night event are HERE

planner’s report:

Thanks to everyone who came to Gala Policies on another mild dry night, and well done to Ian for flying round the 2.2km course in under 18 minutes. Being much runnable ground, there was a fair bit of route choice and good to see some animated discussions afterwards about the best line – or at which controls the wheels came off. With one more race to come, it could go either way for Barry and Ian, but any mistakes by them at Selkirk could open the door for Sam or John. 

Well done Ellie for being First Lady back, and thanks to John for shadowing her (suspect Ellie was casting the shadow with John’s big light behind!)

Thanks also to Paul for helping with a technical glitch, and to Pauline, Sam, Barry and Judith for bringing in controls . Rob – I know I said there wasn’t much climbing, but that was compared to  Vertish! – well done done for getting round with the still dodgy ankle. 

See you all next week at Selkirk  


Vertish Hill, Night Event 1 – Report

When I volunteered to organise this event back in July I thought I would be recovered and back to running.  Alas, I have a wee while to go yet but I still enjoyed planning the first night event of the series on the Vertish Hill.

This was the first night event  I had planned and it was tricky to decide how to get the difficulty just right. My plan was to avoid having too much climb and give plenty opportunity to run on the fairways.  As this was the first event of the series I thought it was better not to make the navigation too tricky. Pleasingly there was a spread of times but with no one taking too long, and six different people having fastest leg times.   Everyone was very positive when they finished.     Well done to Barry Veitch, first home, pipping Keith Murray in an impressive time.

As ever lots of help from Reivers .  Thanks to Lindsey for setting up SI and taking entries.   Andrew took over to allow Lindsey to get a run and then the tidying up was efficiently done with Pauline, John, Barry & Robin collecting in controls.  Lindsey also produced results in quick time before heading away on a foreign trip.  Thank you. See you at Gala next week.

Bowhill event cancelled

After consulting various forecasts, there’s no doubt Bowhill is in for an extremely wet day on Saturday, and while the estate is fairly sheltered, we feel that travel to and from could well be hazardous with the risk of flooded roads.
In addition, competing in such conditions is not very pleasant, so the decision is that tomorrow’s Local event at Bowhill is CANCELLED. We will hope to re-run the event before the end of the winter.
