Review of Dunachton Event

The weather was dry, the sun was around and we were reasonably sheltered from the wind at the finish area. Twenty competitors took part in the May Race, with two courses available. Thanks to Jess for helping to take controls in.

TD3 course: the navigation required for this course was quite hard for TD3; there are few handrails with good attack points for the controls but the competitors coped well. If the leaves had been on the trees the visibility would have been much less. Next week we will do some distance judgement with those who requested it after this evening.

Some questions to think about:

· Which was easier - the navigation in the open or in the woodland? Give reasons for your preference.

· When to take a cut-off and when to go round - what is your personal plan?

TD5 course: a Map memory / Norwegian course which some found challenging, especially the first control (which is why Callum appears in the results as ‘second chance’). Some things for you to consider are:

· How did you go about selecting the information from the map?

· Rate your success with selecting the information (e.g. accuracy, detail you selected vs. detail actually required).

· As this was a race, was there pressure to make quick decisions? How did the ‘race’ format affect you?

· Are you training your brain to take in the important information with each glance at the map?

· Is your confidence in your own ability to retain information improving?

After the race there were many comments along the lines of “I must not use the excuse of looking at the map to stop running during a race”.
