Kyilla Park, Union St, North Perth

Setter Tony Simpkins discovered the large number of laneways behind North Perth's regular street grid while using Bryce Crage's Suburb Run course in the area, and so he set the courses using the laneways as a theme.

In setting the courses Tony tried to make the best routes a bit harder to find. He was also aiming to provide several different options at each control in the southern half of the map in order to separate groups of runners. Read the summary of the best routes on Eventor, with some comments.

Thanks to Sharon & Riley McFarlane for organising a sausage sizzle, which also brought several juniors from the School Championships to compete, with some talent being unearthed – congratulations to Troy Kingma and Amelia & Tilly Black who won their classes on the Short course. Other casual entries Michael Cake and Caroline Bertolino were first on the Short and first woman on the Medium courses respectively. Carol Brownlie was a clear female winner on Short, while Russell Wade broke through for a win on Medium. Sten Claessens won the Long, while Rachel West just pipped Ceri Pass.

A big thank you goes to the setter Tony Simpkins, assisted by Nick Dale. Thanks also to LOST members Jan Fletcher, Jennifer Binns, Liisa Hirvonen, Jason Malham, Edward Plummer, Gary Aitken and Robert Graieg for helping to set up, to meet’n’greet, and to collect controls. Melinda Richards' expertise with registration (very busy) and sorting download failures (also busy) was greatly appreciated.

Check out the results in Eventor, and some some photos on Facebook
