Feedback at the event and in the pub suggested that most people enjoyed a slightly different format, and although I didnít explain it very well at registration, I think the format made sense once you got into the courses. I enjoyed planning it, but it was good to see the first few finishers and know it had produced a reasonable and interesting challenge. It was also good to see a variety of people from different clubs and well done to the Harlequins contingent and Chris McCartney on the fastest times.

If you know Burbage, youíll also know that parts of the area have a lot of impenetrable undergrowth! Once I had decided to use a pathless map, I also decided that it was unlikely that I would use the area south of the railway, because the northern part of the map was more runnable and therefore fairer. The decision to use loops helped me fit in a reasonable length of course in the smaller area. The other advantage was that it didnít take too long to get the controls in before dark!

One thing I did notice after the event was that blue courses c and d had a loop in the opposite direction. That was unintentional although looking at the courses, I couldnít decide whether it was likely to be an advantage or disadvantage; overall I doubt it made any difference.

Many thanks to Roy Denney and Peter Hornsby for helping on the day including a last minute dash back to Hathern to get the SI hire cards!

Thanks also to Peter for printing and help with the map and Roy and Roger Edwards for suggestions on the course formats.
