Many thanks to everyone who turned up to run at Bruntwood Park, and special thanks to those who helped or offered to help on the day. Specifically Toni Essex for her help on the finish to Sue Gibbons and to Annie Price for helping to put out controls and for manning the start.

As the first of a new series of events it was difficult to estimate who or how many people would turn up so it was good to see so many people out and about. Most people took part in the short score and the course seems to have been well received, it is always difficult to plan in an area which you know so well ! Several local people commented on the fact that they had seen parts of the park which they previously never knew existed. Well done to all the people on the long score particularly those who found all the controls within the time limit.

The turn out on the Technical course was a little disappointing, we had hoped that a few more club runners would take advantage of this training opportunity. In retrospect this course was probably a little hard/long but therein lies the challenge! Well done to all those who attempted it, special congratulations must go to Roger Bryant as this was a stiff challenge for an M12. At each future event there will be a different technical challenge (the nature of which is yet to be decided) which should provide a challenging training opportunity for established orienteers.

The next Saturday Challenge event will be on 19th March at Fletcher Moss Didsbury, an interesting runnable area, which has not been used very often so we hope to see you there.
