SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) OMM success for SROC pairs!

The Original Mountain Marathon was held over the weekend, based in Langdale. Strong winds and low visibility dominated Saturday's race but did not deter Zoe and Quentin Harding who finished first on the A course. Second were Iain Embrey and John Ockenden and these positions were held after Better conditions on Sunday. Congratulations to these four and to the other SROC members who completed their courses when many others retired. Results here. Photo thanks to the OMM website.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Williamson Park Results

The results from the event on 7th October are here. It was great to see so many of you there today, especially as many had also been to the event before at Happy Mount Park. And you all seemed to be having a great time, despite the fact that it was a bit damp at times and certainly wet off of the paths. My thanks to all the helpers who worked hard to make the event go so well.
Alongside the results, on the results tab, you will see colour standard times. If you finish inside the colour standard time at 3 events you can claim a cloth badge, different ones for each colour course. This is a great way to work your way through the courses, and improve your orienteering abilities. The badges cost £1.50 each and you can get them from me, just by stating the 3 events. There are now colour times up for Happy Mount Park too, so you may only need one more!
Schools league scores will be updated and published on the website over the next couple of days. Looking at the results, you can see that competition for both the Primary and Secondary prizes is hotting up!

The final event to count is at Eaves Wood, Silverdale on Saturday 11th November – put it in your diary now and make sure, if you are part of a school, that you get a good turnout!
