Organisers Comments:



Well I thoroughly enjoyed a very pleasant evening so I hope you did too. A huge entry on the night didnt fit too well with the late setting-up of registration, but the races set off only a bit late, and then as we did make these the easiest courses yet on Wimbledon, we were saved all the worries about lost runners as you all made it back in a reasonable time.


Thanks go to:

Gavin on the computer

Mark who planned the courses and organized the forest team of Keira, Rachael and Paul.

The two Chrises on registration.


Having released Ed Catmur from forest team duties, the former British Squad member then ran away from the field to claim a bottle of wine. Second place was taken by Drazen Perkovic,one of the two Croatians in the race. They were here on holiday and had e-mailed me in advance asking "I did not quite understand, what is the type of this competition? Is it something between orienteering and running?" Yep!! - that's about right.


In the 6km, Mike Elliot was back from his hols to repeat his win of race 1. Chris Robinson was also re-juvenated after holidays and turned the tables on those whod beaten her before to take the ladies prize. Close behind at the back of the leading pack was a fine performance from 14 year-old Alex Robinson. And slightly further back the Epsom and Ewell ladies did get round.


The overall series awards were as follows.



Men Paul Whiston

Ladies Sue Ashley

Veterans Colin Gray



Ladies Sarah Covey-Crump

Lady vets Chris Robinson

Super-vets Steve Brockbank

Super-duper-vets (60+) Maurice Dunnett
