Middle Distance & VHI relay

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

Thanks to the 40+ runners who came along last night. Hope you enjoyed the courses and the beautiful weather. For us it was a great chance to test run the SIAir+ system, and we can now take a decision about whether or not to use this emerging technology at the WOLF (incorporating the presitigious Veteran Home International) in September
