Summer Series Final Results

With the four scoring results over the winners have been decided
The league table can be found here
Its slightly edited so planner got points to encourage people to plan.

Over the series we had over 250 runners. This was probably due to the beautiful weather that has greeted us every Tuesday evening.

Congratulations to the winners, commiserations to those who didn't preform as well as they would have liked and a big thumbs up to everyone in between.

Next week is the best* event in the year - our Score Event (short and adventure courses also avaiable) in Hollywood followed by a BBQ!
For those that don't know, a score event is one where you have a set amount of time, usually 50mins to collect as many controls as you can. Different controls are worth a varying amount of points. The winner is the person who collects the most amount of points in the 50mins - if your over, your points get deducted per minute late. Time keeping, knowing your own abilities and planning are essential skills to excel at this format.
This event would be a perfect warm up for Setanta Wicklow Rogaine or an Adventure race with an element of orienteering invloved!

From what I hear some of the forest has gone through some clearing so we now have access to new sections of forest. Don and Ruairi have planned so don't run off at the start like a headless chicken!

See you all Tuesday evening
