Staple Hill (W), re-entrant

League analysis

Who's in the running for the trophies? The league tables have begun to take shape but with two QOFLs left, even those who've ran just once so far have a chance. So early pacesetters are best to keep on showing up to defend their lead!

Simplify - see You Tube video

Training video

Focussing on the big features on the map which are easy to see on the ground helps you go faster. Less time is then spent studying irrelevant detail on the map. This skill takes a bit of practice.

River Dart Country Park

A brief pause during an excellent run on Orange for a QO runner

Day out in Devon

Do event bases get any better? Beautiful grounds with all the facilities you could want in a compact area, on a sunny spring day. Seventeen made the trip and some of the QO results were as eye catching as the activity park's vibrant riverside attractions.

Young Wood JOG

Working it out together

Review

Tom Hasler planned some interesting courses, the highlight being the Fox exercise using an Underground-style diagram for the map. Thanks to everyone who helped collect in controls, it was good to see so many children helping!
