Well done everyone, the 2015-16 Metro Series has set off with a bang this year as the categories are already hotting up. See the Series standings so far here.
To cap it off - on the long course Polly Weston and Steve Lock are in front. Both are avid adventure racers, orienteers and mountain bikers so it is no secret that these two will do well in the series and maybe this is all part of their training in the lead up to the Godzone Adventure Race...
On the Medium course Oliver Martin is proving to be a chip off the old block, narrowly in the lead over his father Andrew Martin by only 3 points! Carol Brownlie and Christine Howitt are in a tie and only future races will show who will come out on top - will Jennifer Binns step up to the challenge in the next few races and over take? Who knows!
In the short course Duncan Sullivan is sitting in top spot with maximum possible points - but how long can this last? Duncan will have to watch out for the youngster Mason Eves, our OWA award winner and up and coming athlete is sure to perform well. Better keep your eyes peeled Duncan! Close competition in the women for the short course with Sarah Richards in front of Michelle Martin, Lily McFarlane and Janet Fletcher with few points between them. Only time will tell on this course. Good luck guys - wishing you all the best runs possible as the competiton heats up!
Talking about hot, last weekend was our 'Burbs and Bush Bike Bash where we trialled some urban mountain bike orienteering. The results can be found here. We have plenty of photos on facebook so check it out! It was a great success and we hope to hold more of these events in the future. Thank you to our enthusiastic setters who took on this event for 'a bit of fun'. We all enjoyed it very much.
