Planner’s Notes


What a superb day – the weather was better than any I had for planning!


I hope you enjoyed the courses. It is a brilliant area but imposed a few limitations. The longer courses had to be zig-zagged to get them to fit in so the runners would often be within 100m of where they had been 30min earlier. The lack of line features affected the shorter courses, especially the yellow, where the times were quite short. However as no-one complained I assume the courses were acceptable.


Thanks to Roger Stein, the controller, whose patience and advice were invaluable on this, my first attempt. Thanks also to Mike, Dave, Ben, Leighton, Sarah, Phil, Bridget and Roger for saving my ancient legs by collecting the controls.
