Organiser's Comments

A lovely day if a bit hot for some. Thank you to all our helpers, particularly those (Rachel and Jo) who were helping for the first time. You all coped well with the extra challenges of the remote start, the Score format and the heat.

Thanks to Ian Byrne for use of the car park.

Don't forget that there is still time to get tickets for SMOC's summer party on Saturday 21 June - contact Freya or any committee member for tickets.

Planner's Comments

Teardrop Lakes is a pretty but very small area, making it difficult to fit in a 5km Trot course without crossing roads. The two-map "Score" format seemed to be a good alternative, although it led to a few chaotic moments when starters, finishers and map exchangers all started arriving at the same time. My thanks to Steve for several helpful suggestions on the course and the format.

The Run was able to wander a bit further afield: between the Alice-in-Wonderland hedges of the Bowl car park, and the warren of identical roads in Shenley Lodge, everyone found a puzzle or two before the final gratuitous hill.

Email me (smoc@dorien.me.uk) if you spot mistakes in the results.
