Regional level event

Explanation of Event levels

Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Activities are non competitive events used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships.



Compared to what the weather was like back in 2019 this was absolutely fantastic and a tad 'warm' when in the sun.

ELTs all within range. This was always going to be a burn up challenging your speed endurance. 17 controls were used.

Having made a final check on Fri 3rd I was both baffled and annoyed to find out this morning that the small gate on the NW corner of the Winter Gardens had between 11am Friday and 10am Sunday been chained closed. This makes little sense as there is a bolt to secure and due to Covid-19 The Peoples Palace remains closed.
