ORIENTEERING: Octavian Droobers Christmas Relays


Results from Rough Close

After the Christmas festivities a great day out was had by club members and visitors at the annual Christmas Relays. The organisers, the Smart and Lunn families were especially pleased that there was no rain although the going underfoot was pretty muddy and flooded areas were marked so as to be avoided.

Competitors had the option of forming teams to run the 4 legs or going it alone. The overall handicap winner was Harrison McCartney M18 who completed all four legs in a time of 52.08 minutes over the total distance of 9.8km. Matt Elkington M20 was the fastest solo performer taking 51.31mins and the junior competition was won by the twin pairs of Tabitha and Florence Lunn W12 running with Rachel and Julie Emmerson W20.
