Venice street race

Venice, yesterday

What streets?!

We're used to events being rained off, but held so soon after the ancient city's worst floods in a decade, it seems amazing this race actually went ahead! Tony Hext celebrated a big birthday in style there.

Inside Park

Action from Inside Park, 2012 event

SW League

A good-sized QO contingent travelled down to Dorset, with those on the long courses getting to run across seemingly every square metre of this woodland based campsite. There were good results, with a dozen of our 17 runners achieved 'course standard'.

Missing in action- dibber 987

Newcomer finds lost SI card

Like finding a needle in a, we're not talking about "that" control on your last course. Rather, what happens when those neat little timing chips we attach to our index fingers go missing during competition (and hopefully not into a pile of brashings)

Willett Hill JOG

Steep ascent to the folly, with the Quantocks behind

All courses visited the tower at the top of the hill so everyone had a chance to catch their breath and enjoy the views!

It was good to see people chatting at the end comparing their courses and discussing their route choices.

Great Breach Wood Start

Next event

We leave the Quantocks now for the eastern ridge of the Poldens and Great Breach Wood, a popular venue last time out in 2015. Like Blackborough, it's on a plateau bordered by steep slopes.
