SA Sprint Champs in ideal weather

Monday, 6 March 2017

And they are off at the Start!

The SA Sprint Championships,run by Tintrookies Orienteers were the culmination of the Sprint Series run by the Southern Arrows. 89 people competed on the day in ideal weather conditions at Trinity College. The college's willingness to allow us to use their grounds was greatly appreciated

The large number of runners who achieved gold level badge merit points reflected the extra experience and commitment to training over the summer season.

Congratulations to all competitors and thanks to all who helped make the day a success. Particular mention to David George who set challenging courses and Robin Uppill (OSA Controller) who provided advice and ensured all the markers were in the correct place.

Full results including badge splits and leg splits by course can be found on the results page. Also the course and route choice can be seen on route gadget.
