Training / analysis
We've all been there - having a great run, then feelings of confusion and possibly utter panic when the next control doesn't fall to plan! A leg on Steve Robertson's Blue course from Sunday appears to illustrate relocation, from attack point through to finding the control.
QO hopefully listens and responds to the views of members to reflect and improve. Please fill in the survey that best fits how long you've been with us:
Message from our captain

MapRun at Longrun
This evening (Thursday 20 Feb) from 18.30, there's another opportunity to try out MapRun, an app which uses GPS signals for controls. The course this time uses parkland and streets with a good path network.
SW League (6 of 9)
Martin Lewis consolidated his lead in the league by finishing runners up on the Light Green course in the New Forest at Dur Hill and Holmsley Walk. Bill Vigar was less than 8 minutes behind the winner on Short Green.
The future, now!
There's been a buzz about the MapRun app recently. Appropriately enough, you also get a buzz (or a bleep) whenever you find the virtual controls and its emitted by your smartphone. Come along this Thursday (22 February) for another course and presentation!
The "Galoppen" series recommences at St Audries on Sunday 8 April. Our event will be the 8th in the series of 9 races.
Course now open to all
You can use a smartphone to try a course created with MapRun, an app which uses GPS signals for controls. It uses parkland and riverside paths on the west of Taunton.
In Ham Hill, we have an excellent venue for our penultimate Forest League event of the season. There is still everything to play for in each league, which has been unpredictable to date!
