Results & Organiser's Comments:
Thanks for running in the midweek street O event at Brentwood North on Tuesday. Hopefully you all had fun. There were some nice comments indicating that you had enjoyed your run, in for some, what was a new area. The sun was out and it was a pleasant evening, I thought, to enjoy the hills and route choice of Brentwood North. I tried to get a bit of both into the courses. Big thanks to Colin who helped out on the night and made sure things went smoothly.
There were a couple of errors from some of you. I have been back to check on the control sites to see if I can work out the issues, but in most cases there was no alternative to the correct answer, so I have had to give out a few penalties.
Well done to Graham Batty who got the best time on the short course. Gillian Edgar was first woman home, and indeed those results were reversed once the handicaps were taken into account. David Game and Veronica Machin lead the way in the series so far.
On the long course, Chris Prince recorded the fastest time, just under a minute ahead of Seb Paris. Paul Beckett ran the course a day early to test it out, and with the help of his local knowledge would have slotted into third in the rankings. First woman home was Jackie Sibthorpe. For the purposes of the league table we take handicaps into consideration, and for this event that left things really close at the top, the first five runners separated by just 35 seconds. Guy Lidbury takes the honours, six seconds ahead of Chris Prince.
However, once we look at the series so far, it is David Lumby who leads the way, with two 98 point runs. Lyn West, in fifth overall, is the best placed female,
Don't forget you can also get 50 points for the league by attempting an Essex MapRun during the series. There are quite a lot available - if you liked Brentwood North, there is a map run there, and if you want to get a taste for Brentwood South ahead of the next HAVOC street O in the series, there is one there as well!
I hope you all enjoyed Brentwood North on Tuesday, and we look forward to the next event in Heybridge.
