Thank you for coming. We were very lucky to be able to plan courses in such a lovely area, with little undergrowth for this time of year. It's a very safe area to hang controls so we were able to collect some the morning after the event. Even the weather was OK. Many people said they enjoyed their courses - thanks for the positive feedback.
Well done on Short Blue to Aidan Smith, 4th in this year's Junior World Orienteering Championships in Norway, and also to the SHUOC boys who are regular front runners in the local fell races. Al Buckley managed to sneak in amongst the youngsters.
We have been lenient with the results as a small number of competitors missed one of the controls with an SI unit on their course. In particular on Green, three competitors (* above) missed the last control #31.
See you again in the woods.
Monika and Ian Cooper
Parking - car park at Redmires, off Redmires Road (Grid Reference SK 256856), or on road
Redmires Woods are the woodlands west of the three Redmires reservoirs. Most of the map is mature coniferous woodland with minimal undergrowth providing superb running, but at the northern edge it opens out to moorland sheep pasture. There are few paths. The area is dotted with quarry /mining workings, some of which provide excellent technical orienteering.More details about Redmires...
