BASOC AGM - Carrbridge

Sat 25th Nov 2017

Type of event: Score, Social, Training
Type of terrain: Forest


Event Report

This was a fun training session prior to the AGM. The Roxburgh Reivers were not part of the mass start and so I have used their clear time as their start time. This may not be accurate but is the best guess.

People were given a specific target number of controls to visit within a 45 minute period. No penalties have been applied for late finishing.

Adrian Hope was the first to finish having visited his target number of 6 controls.

WOLF - Auchernack & Balliefurth

Middle Distance & VHI relay

Sat 23rd Sep 2017

Type of event: District Race-(C)
Type of terrain: Forest, Woodland


Event Report

Apologies to the Green course competitors who had the wrong time input for the mass start and so their splits printout at download had approx 8 extra mins to the first control. This was soon rectified and all results are now correct.

Q: What does "Gaffled" mean?

A: Gaffel is the Swedish word for 'fork'. It's where a course is forked in places to minimise following. This is mostly used in relay running where over the 3 legs, everyone has run exactly the same. Due to the veteran home international relay in the morning, we thought it would be a great opportunity to use these courses for everyone to have a go. It meant that you didn't run exactly the same as other people on the green, so as a stand alone event it wasn't completely fair. However the distances were all within i think 30m. It's not a concept that would be used in a championship of any sort (apart from relay of course!). It meant that for today you were running similar to others, but had to keep concentrating because you might not always have the same next control. Hope that helps!
