STAG Spring Score - 2nd of 4 - Sunday 24th March 2013

STAG’s 2nd Score event in this 4 race series was held on a new map of Greenhead Moss, Wishaw.
Apologies for a) The one legged Planner under estimating how long it would take to site controls
b) Control 44 being in the pit west of the “u”. On map checking I had realised that there were 2 “v"s on the ground but only one shown on the map. In my haste this morning I convinced myself that one pit was shallower than the other which it wasn’t.

Thanks again for your support. I hope the biting wind wasn’t too off putting.

Congratulations to Arnis & Kirsten who managed to visit all controls but only Arnis received bonus points as I see Kirsten missed some by a mere second.

My personal thanks to - Gerry, Pat & John for helping with the parking, registration & start.
- Blair & Robin for Downloading & Results
- Alastair, Blair, Gerry, John, Pat, Scott & Tobi for helping bring in all the 28 controls & home by 3pm.

In this 4 event series, we will be splitting competitors into the same Classes as used in our Glasgow Parks Champs with a small momento being offered to the first 3 in each Class, provided they have completed 3 events.

Bonus points have been awarded - 10pts per 6 seconds under the hour for those competitors who managed to visit all 28 Controls.

Unfortunately I cannot find my Routegadget Folder to upload the event but possibly will rectify this on Monday after work.

In conjunction with “The Friends of Greenhead Moss” we hope to launch a new permanent course facility during 2013.

Terrain description

Situated to the south-west of Newmains & north-west of the village of Waterloo, Greenhead Moss is a cracking wee area with a terrific mix of terrain & old mineworkings.

For those of you who have never been to the “Serengeti” this is your chance !!

The mapped area covers over 270 acres of land incorporating a wide variety of terrain, an extensive path network and as the term “Moss” implies not a great deal of climbing. Runnability at this time of year is at its best.

Throughout the area there are several monuments and the Stratographic Stairway & Ramp is worth closer examination after your run.
