With a more reasonable weather forecast this week the Trigg MetrO series event had a good turnout of close to 100 participants. It was great to see plenty of newcomers trying the sport out for the first time. There was an interesting mix of bushland tracks and streets and feedback suggests working out a good route choice was challenging. The many offers of help to collect controls after the event were much appreciated.

Event Report: Manning MetrO Series Event 3

Saturday 16th November 2019

Post event Manning Park

Last Saturday’s MetrO event at Manning Park proved very challenging for many competitors. Distances for the short, medium and long courses were no different from other events, but winning times were considerably slower due to the hot weather, hilly terrain and difficulty of running on the narrow sandy and rocky trails. The navigation in the complex trail network was also trickier than at most MetrO events, and even the winners admitted to making a mistake or two (or three, or four).
