NGOC Gallopen - 18th March 2012

Great event from NGOC today, definitely worth the trip up.  I ran Brown which was 9.6km 375m, and it felt like it to.  I messed up #1 which had a bit of felling near it and I dropped to low.  Later I had a great run to #4 came out of the forest bang on the path junction but couldn't make the terrain fit and lost time confused.  My eyes just couldn't see the hill!!  Messed up #10, but then clean for the rest of the run, if a little slow on the climb out of #18.  Quite happy with my run, and looking forward to Cornwall OC race at Trelissick next weekend.

Devon Score Event - 4th March 2012

"The idea of the Technical Score (28 Controls) is to provide a flexible event for all abilities and ages. This will be achieved by having no time limitation. The competitor can stay out as long as they wish 1 point will be deducted from their score for every minute (or part minute) spent out on the course. Each control will score 10 points."

An interesting event from Devon OC, with penalty points being racked up as you went, I missed #4 because of a badly folded map, apart from that I had an enjoyable run in some testing slippery conditions, there was also a fair amount of climb especially between 14 and 17. I did 7.72km 88:17. 


oh and did I mention that I have lost 8kg this year so training is going well!!!!
