Tweedbank results 4/12/21

The results from today’s Score event at Tweedbank are HERE

This was the final event in our Autumn series, with the club Christmas meal to follow.

We opted for a score course with a “mass start” (spaced at Covid-compliant intervals !) to ensure a prompt finish.  To spice things up a little, runners could choose one of  two options using  the same map – a standard 45 minute score (as many controls as possible in any order) and a Challenge score with bonus points for each control if done in one set of even numbers then one set of odd, or vice-versa.  Five people opted for the challenge, with the remainder going for the standard course.

Colin Williams managed to clear all the controls on the Challenge course well within the allotted time to take first place overall, while Ellie Darlow made short work of the standard course in a little over 30 minutes.  It was good to see lots of different route choices, with runners all heading off in different directions at the start.

Thanks to everyone who made it along (and commiserations to those who were planning to but couldn’t attend..), and a special thanks to those who helped to make it happen – Robin for Controlling and setting out; Lindsey for looking after entries, download and results (and still getting a run);   and Pauline, Rob, Andrew, Judith, Bridget and Ken for collecting in controls.
