Many thanks to all who came to run, their team leaders and parents who brought them and all the helpers who contributed to a very memorable event, aided by the excellent weather.
My main aim was to ensure that no one could clear all the controls. I'm pleased to have achieved this. Well done to those who came close.
The area doesn't give much scope for a navigational challenge. Instead, hopefully everyone enjoyed the challenge of calculating how much ground they could cover in 45 minutes. As expected, a number (particularly the older boys) appear to have miscalculated and accrued penalty points as a result. As far as I can tell, control 55 wasn't visited by anyone. Nevertheless I'm sure it added to the problems to be solved.
Not all the maps were collected from map reclaim.
