Organiser's Comments

Loughton Valley always proves to be a great Keyne-O venue and I hope everyone enjoyed the interesting courses Ian planned for us today. It always makes me smile as I pass the concrete cows! We had a total of 148 participants today (66 on amble, 63 on trot and 21 on run). Thank you to my trusty team of helpers: Helen, Ros, Will, Haydn, Rachel, Matthew, Milly, Richard & Rob. I am very grateful for all your help.

Planner's Comments

This was the first event I have planned in Loughton Valley and before I started I was given two pieces of advice: make sure all courses pass the concrete cows and make sure that no-one on the Amble can fall into the river by mistake. Hopefully I succeeded on both counts! I was less successful in checking that the numbers were the same on both sides of the controls, and apologise if this confused or delayed anyone. However, all the controls were there, even if at least one experienced orienteer was confused by my linear thicket on the Trot (a hedge, in plain English). Thank you to Freya for organising the helpers, and I hope everyone who turned up enjoyed orienteering in one of the new city's most extensive park areas.
