Many thanks to Carol for planning and organising. Thanks also to the Black Horse for hosting us and reserving the window by the door. It was a good turnout last Wednesday with a couple of new faces joining us. I hope you enjoyed the run around the area, we look forward to seeing you again.

Headington results are published

The results for the Headington event #4 are now published.

Many thanks to Sarah for planning and organising. Thanks also to the Britannia Inn for hosting us again. It was a busy night with one of the highest turnouts for some time last Tuesday. A number of people also chose to run in festive gear to gain a few extra points. Again a tricky area where obtaining high scores was not that easy.
As usual, if you see any mistakes in the results, please let me know and I can try to fix them up.

Final event of the 2015-2016 series

Kidlington Report

Thanks to Carol for supplying the following thoughts on the event.

Thanks to everyone who turned up and ran on this dark and wet evening. The pub was very welcoming, and had set aside four tables for us at one end of the pub. This gave us a nice social space for drinks, food, and chat after people’s runs. You can see that Christmas apparel made a key difference in the final positions at the top of the table. Marcin won overall, but his 510 points without the bonus for the full Santa Claus outfit that he ran in (not technical material, and he said it was very hot, and I think he really deserves more than 40 bonus points) would have put him in joint 3rd place, with Roger winning, and Robin moving up from 4th to joint 3rd. And if, in addition, Roger hadn’t had his Christmas decoration, then Ben Green would move up to joint 1st place from 3rd. There are some close scores lower down the table as well, and positions could have been different if Christmas bonuses had been earned. Maybe this information can be used to prepare for next year’s Christmas event…
