Planner's Comments

I was trying to make the most of a small area without repeating the courses from the handicap.

I was a bit surprised about the times on the orange compared with the other courses! The winning times were a bit faster than usual for a SOG, but in the area given this were necessary
to avoid the courses repeating themselves too much. Tricky legs are a bit difficult in this
area. ?The green course was so popular that we ran out of maps. Thank you to John and Dave for
the car parking, and to those who gave up their green maps so everyone could run the course
that they wanted to, and thanks to Scarlet for helping out on the start and keeping the supply
of maps flowing. Thanks to the SI team Ralph Phillips, Les Coles and Mike Ralph for doing
their thing and coping with all the dogs that found their tent fascinating.?

SOG Series Info

SOGs are friendly club events where children and newcomers are very welcome. Yellow and Orange courses are suitable for children to run on their own with a bit of practice. Adults are welcome to shadow children until they are confident to go on their own. Green and Blue courses are run or walked by any age group - you can race competitively or just enjoy the woodland.

There are two series of events - autumn and spring, of approximately 10 events each. Electronic timing (SI) is used.

Help on the day always appreciated.
