The 2015 SOS Relays were held at Wivenhoe Park, Colchester on Sunday 12th July. HAVOC fielded two of the 12 teams that took part. So, there were eight club members at this 4-person team event.
During the competion, two team members have to run Light Green, three Orange and all four Yellow. Therefore, at least one team member must run all three legs. At the start, each team is given a copy of the three course maps and must decide who is to run which leg. A runner is allowed to carry only one dibber for each of the legs he or she runs so there is no cheating! A team's start time is handicapped being based the ages and sex of the team members.
Fortunately ALL HAVOC members successfully completed their courses this year. In the previous two runnings of the event HAVOC members have suffered a variety of mispunching or disqualification of another member in their team. But. hurrah!! the "HAVOC Bronze Age" team of Mike Muggeridge, Chris Shaw, Shane Muggeridge and Garry Parmenter came home in fourth place while the "HAVOC Mispunchers" team of Paul Beckett, Barbara Fothergill, Graham Batty and Dale Bennett were eighth.
Well done to all who took part.
