Organiser's Comments

Thanks for taking part, and allowing us to test at least some of the rules GG has developed for the future British Mixed Sprint Relays. Thanks also to all the SYO volunteers, including some new faces, and to Ranald Macdonald for controlling the event. Michael's courses seemed to work well, and the winning times were mostly about right to allow the event to run to the schedule.

The event date took us a while to determine, and the lateness of announcing it, meant that some classes had very few entries. I decided (without knowing how many entries we'd get) that we'd need two different mass starts in order not to have too many people in a pack at the beginning. In retrospect, perhaps we could have started everyone at once at 5pm.

If anyone has any specific feedback then please add it to the discussion on the Nopesport thread.

Mixed Sprint Relays around The Edge Campus (Sheffield University).  Open competition (4 legs, for teams of 2, 3 or 4 people), plus age class competitions for Juniors and Veterans (3 legs, for 3 people).

The Guidelines for this event have been developed by Graham Gristwood for use as the format for a future "British Championships". This event will follow the same format, though some of the guidelines will be amended.  A copy of the Guidelines (with amendments/comments) is published here.

Organiser: Martin and Lesley Ward

Planner: Michael Adams

Controller: Ranald Macdonald (DVO)

Venue Details

The Edge is  the main campus in Endcliffe Student Village; it is typical University Campus with a mixture of older buildings and modern accomodation blocks dotted around a grassy sloping site which also includes steps and water.  The map also covers some other areas in the village east of the campus, which are mostly older buildings with interlinked gardens and wider grounds.

Safety & risk

A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event. If a competitor has a pre-existing medical condition that they think should be declared, please complete a medical form at enquiries. The sealed envelope will only be opened in an emergency.


SYO has an agreed policy on the taking of photographs at events, based on national guidance. This provides a sensible balance between the benefits and risks associated with the taking and use of images. If you are unsure about acceptable practice, please speak to the event organiser. Read our photography policy.
