Our next event is the Keyne-O at Howe Park Wood on Sunday 4th June.
Thank you to all the helpers who supported the day. My job as organiser was made so much easier by the many willing and experienced hands who volunteered on the day, especially Dorien and Oliver who spent the whole time helping and did not run and to Alex Pembery who offered to help on the day after his run. Thanks also to Ros and Dorien for their coaching before the event. Thank you also to the Discovery Centre for making the toilets available.
For the most part the day was ideal for running with a few spots of rain at the end leading to download having to retreat into the tent.

The glorious weather helped make this a most enjoyable event, despite being a little damp underfoot earlier on in the day. Thanks to all the competitors who readily provided feedback at the end of their runs. Most seemed to have enjoyed the experience and everyone completed their course safely. A number of entrants did admit to over-running several controls - possibly, not helped by the less familiar scale of the map at 1:7,500. For many competitors, the highlight of the day was their selfie with the "concrete cows". A good range of times on the Run suggests a fair course. Those who normally tackle the Amble and stepped up to the Trot today should be congratulated on persevering despite some longer than desired times.
Thanks to all who helped on the day, especially the control collectors. Special thanks to Dorien for coaching, mentoring and supporting me throughout.
