On Wed 8th Nov 2017
Results and Splits ('Other') v2 uploaded 23:00 (8/11/17)
Apologies for being unable to provide splits printouts tonight - we had a power issue meaning we were unable to run the printer. Sorry for the technical hitch on download too which caused queues - hopefully most of you managed to download (eventually!).
I have worked as best I can to reload any issues caused from collecting controls too early, as well as reinstating any of you who missed the start or finish punches.
If anyone would like a compact printable PDF of their splits (like you should've recieved!) then please email me and I can send you yours.
Come along to SYO's first night event of the year in the lovely runable woodland and intricate moorland contour detail of Redmires. This event is suitable for experienced and improver orienteers.

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...
