Headless Hill race report - by Megan Carter-Davies
4 of us headed over to Headless Hill (Lawrence will be in awe of this pun) on a fine winter’s day. The forest is so runnable at this time of year and this part of the Forest of Dean had some good technical slopes too, making for some fab orienteering. The boyz, Ben, Matt and Tom, raced around the very hilly Brown course (400m climb over 7km!) with Ben taking a solid win, Tom taking 11th place and Matt dnf’ing (Orienteering speak for “did not finish”) after running out of energy by control 9. However he did lead Ben into control 3 – highly commended, well done Matt. Meanwhile, since I am recovering from a small injury, I had a lovely walk/jog around the Green course as a break from revision. I was really impressed with the planning, such a fun little course – might have to go back one day to run it full speed!
