Triple Gloucester weekend

05-02-2018

View email

UBOC were out in force this weekend, with a total of 10 orienteers out enjoying three great races hosted by NGOC.

Saturday day - by Matt Pickering

Anticipation had been building for many months for the Triple Gloucester weekend. The day started well as I picked up Sophie, Sam, Harry and Jack from the student union and we made our way into the big bad forest. Michael, Megan, Ben, Meredith and Lawrence met us there. Mallard's Pike is a flat part of the Forest of Dean with lots of interlocking ditches, routes are straight, compasses need to be accurate and ditches need to be jumped. I timed my race to perfection, Big Purks (the planner) was both at the start when I started and at the finish when I finished. I shall be refreshing his Attackpoint this evening to see what he thought about the day's events. Upon returning to my car, Jack, Harry and Sam had already escaped from the forest having successfully completed their first race on the Orange. Harry beat Ella Rush into 2nd place, Jack was 3rd and Sam 8th. A good effort by all. You can look at the results if you want to know how the rest of us did.

Saturday night - by Megan Carter-Davies

Some of us stayed out after the first race for the evening’s night-time sprint races around Chepstow. The town exceeded all our expectations with lots of little alleyways, some hills, slippery grass slopes and well planned courses - it was really fun! I did the short course while the others did the longer version. Ben (for once) didn’t take the win as he was pipped by 2 seconds(!). Meanwhile Meredith successfully completed her first urban course in a great time. An added bonus to the evening was the free soup (all 7 varieties!), bread rolls and tea/coffee at the end, om nom nom..

Sunday - by Lawrence Jones

Sunday's saw six brave UBOCers return to Mallards Pike for the final race of the Triple Gloucester. With far better weather and fewer pesky short legs than Saturday, but with the same snow stunted bracken, there was some very fast running. Ben won the Black course followed (at various intervals) by Megan, Matt, Lawrence and Michael, who managed make up 30% of the competition field for that race. Tracy also put in a good race on the Green.
