Results from todays event at Bowhill are HERE
I do hope that everyone enjoyed their runs.
When planning the courses it was clear that it is probably time to re-survey quite a bit of the area – vegetation in particular has changed somewhat with various areas much more runnable than indicated and in others rhododendron thickets are completely unmarked. For the most part I chose to avoid areas where this was the case. You’ll perhaps be relieved to know that I ditched my original plan to do something different from normal and take you up the steep hill to the north of Bowhill House. I did at least position controls 9 and 10 on the Light Green course in a small area that I’m not aware we’ve used for this kind of event.
I’d like to thank Bowhill Ranger Rory Powell for permission to run the event, and to Rob in particular for his help in putting out some controls before the 1pm rush.
