Glenfern Run

Tuesday, 29 November 2016

Turning over our maps led to one of those "oh no" moments where you are faced with a dilemma that keeps you at a standstill.  The longer it takes for the crowd to move off, the better the job by the course setter!  As is often the case, Mark's courses had a nice loop that was just one control short.  So where to go for that extra control?  Even on D course there were 4 or 5 choices.  This end of the map also has lots of curving streets and small cut-throughs which add to the challenge. It was a perfect night with mild conditions and not a mozzie in sight.  Afterwards we got to enjoy the juicy fresh pineapple, oranges and melon, which is a feature of Monday night orienteering.

A course winners were Ian, Ted and Steven.  Fastest on B were Jay, Andrew and Warwick. C course was won by Ian, Tony and Mark, while Peter K dropped in during his holidays to win D course from me and Ray.  Dave scored 58 to top the PW rankings, ahead of Roger who was just the wrong side of 8.05, and Michael.

We're into week 7 - almost a third of the way through already! A course has Steven, Andrew and Ian as the top three.  B course is still led by Andrew, Lauris and Mark. Ian has a 6 week winning streak to be out in front of C course, and Stuart has moved up to 2nd ahead of Jenny.  I'm still leading Ray on D course.  On PW, Dave has extended his lead over Michael to 6 points, and Helen is in a very strong third.

Come along and join in the fun next Monday evening at Ashwood North.  We'll be starting at 7pm from Jordan Reserve, off Huntingdale Road.  Register from 6.30pm, and choose any one of 4 courses for runners, or the 1 hour power walking option.  $5 adults, $2 juniors (u21).

What to bring: jogging/walking shoes and comfortable, light coloured clothing.  Bring a watch, a drink, and a torch for winter events (late March-mid October).

Please arrive 20-30 minutes early. This will provide time to help you register for the event and explain how to take part.

Groups (schools, scouts, sports or social) are extremely welcome, but please contact us at least a week prior to the event so we can ensure enough maps are printed. 

In summer (October-March), there are 4 runners courses ranging from 3.5-10 km, and a 60 minute power walkers' course.  For runners the format is Scatter (visit a designated number of controls in any order, first back wins), and for power walkers the format is Score format (visit as many controls as you can in the allocated time).

In winter (March-October), there are 25 controls marked on the map.  Choose one of two formats - a 60 minute Score course (visit as many controls as you can in the allocated time, aiming to score as many points as possible), or a "Target" course, where you aim to achieve a target score between 4 and 36 points.
