Our neighbours Devon OC's first foray into the exciting low key smartphone urban format at Exeter Quay saw several QO members make the trip.
Trowbridge, 15 May
In the fourth of Bristol OC's summer series, Graham Hartley was 3rd of 28 on the short course (Green) and within 90s of the winner.
Richard Sansbury was just seven minutes behind the runner up on the long course (Blue).
Martin Lewis (12th) and Angela Modica (11th) continue to be evenly matched on Green; this time Angela was ahead, but by less than a minute.
Martin moves up to 4th in the league, one place behind Graham. Angela has one less run than Martin but better scores.
Bath, 8 May
They went to Bath - and got a shower! At least that was the weather forecast for the 10 attracted by a street race through the spa city. QO members generally showed up very well in the results again, including 2017 short course (Green) champion Graham Hartley.
Pete Shirvington edged out Richard Sansbury by 90s on the long course (Blue). Graham was 5/37 on Green, just three minutes behind the winner and 30s behind last year's champion Alison Simmons of Bristol OK.
Several members from the NE of the county were there, including Daniel Jones, who was returning to action after joining us last year.
Just looking at the league positions of those who have run all three events to date, Pete is 7th of 12 on Blue. Graham is 3rd and Martin Lewis 4th of 12 on Green. Below them, Rosie Wych and Angela Modica have two very good runs to build on.
Nailsea, 1 May (Bristol series 2 of 6)
Pete Shirvington was top QO at Nailsea in the second of Bristol OK's summer urban series. He was in the top quarter of competitors on the longest course. Several other QO were out on the streets too.
The 2017 Green course champion Graham Hartley took just over half an hour on Green and was within three minutes of the runner up place. Rosie Wych and Martin Lewis were five minutes behind Graham, and Angela took a further one minute extra. All four were in the top quarter. Both main courses were ran by more than 40 competitors each.
More about the Bristol urban series
Graham Hartley has been a regular and a quite high achieving one at that in previous summers.
Bristol urban summer series begins
Bristol University was the scene for this first of the Bristol area summer series on Wednesday 24 April, and several QO went. Series regular Graham Hartley was just 90s behind the winner on and Martin Lewis finished well above halfway on the Green course.
