Metrogaine last night

What a fabulous night! Lots of people new to metrogaine / orienteering / rogaining and I was also absolutely delighted to have orienteering friends Garry and Jeremy doing their first Metrogaine (about time guys!).

Top scores were absolutely incredible - Brian and Neal with 1540 points (out of 1640 - they only missed getting three controls) and they ran around 19km in 1h28. I don't think I can run that fast downhill, much less at night, on a hilly route and locating checkpoints. Phenomenal! Alex and Jeremy and Garry and Michael not too far off this either.

I've put a report with results and map on AR -

Special mention and thanks to Fred, Pam, Mike and Kyle for their help. Many hands make light work - and keep the event running smoothly ;)

These photos - all by Fred.

Next metrogaine is Thurs, 21 June - yeah, winter solstice. Running = warm.
