Endeavour Hills

Wednesday, 11 January 2017

Sometimes the map name is cryptic - other times, you know exactly what you are in for - it was certainly an endeavour to climb those hills! It's also a map where keeping contact is vital - you need to count off every one of the myriad walkways, courst and cuthroughs. I think this map must hold the record for the most courts - many of them lead into a park, but many of them don't!  On top of dealing with the contours and the sheer number of streets, Lauris bamboozled us with her clever course layout. Certainly the shortest routes didn't necessarily appear that way.  

Andrew returned first on A course (I noted that he ran up the last hill into the finish faster than I'd run down it at the start), followed by Ian and Steven.  Ian, Andrew and Jay were quickest on B.  Tony, Jenny and Peter M won C course.  Denise, Peter G and Graham were fastest on D course.  There were a lot of power walkers, but Michael again proved too strong, winning with 56 points. Helen came very close with 53, as did Michael S with 51.

There were very few changes overall, but there are some really close contests.  Most notably on A1 where Steven is just one point clear of Ian;  D course, wehre Rob is 3 points ahead of Ray; PW1, with Dave 2 points in front of Helen, and PW2, where Mike has a 3 point lead on Gwennyth.

Next Monday's event is at beautiful beachside Beaumaris, which has virtually no contours, lovely views, and fresh sea air. See you there!

Monday Night Series

About this series:

Where: Southern and eastern suburbs of Melbourne

When: 7:00pm Mondays; all year round

Cost:  $5 per event for adults, $2 for juniors (under 21)

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).

Enquiries: tel 0409 959 673 (Annie)

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.

Enquiries: 0409 135 020 (Debbie)
