Lincs Urban League 2022 – Final Round-Up

The 2022 edition of the Lincs Urban League, a series of six races jointly hosted by LOG and HALO, concluded on the streets of Scunthorpe Town centre last night. A number of trophies were up for grabs and many of them went down to the wire in this grand finale!

The Men’s Long title, a two-way shoot-out between Liam Harrington and David Jolly, was won by Liam by just a single point. The Women’s Long was a three horse race between LOG’s Andrea Page, Ally Wright and Anna-Kaisa Koskela-Brooke, with Ally ending up securing enough points on the evening to claim her first long title. The Women’s Medium title has already been retained for a second year by Hannah Mather and Paulius Malkevicius just pipped Pete Harris on countback to win the Men’s Medium trophy. Finally, the Short title was claimed by Mary Vickers, with 6 wins out of 6! The inter-club trophy was always going to be a closely fought affair, with LOG holding a slender 36 point advantage going into the final fixture, and HALO managed to overturn this on the night, using home advantage well to take the shield by just 8 points!

Points from this sixth event at Scunthorpe can be found here, with the final series table here.

Fight the Night 2022 – Race #4 Results & Overall Awards

The final race of the 2022 Fight the Night series saw another strong field taking to the streets of Lincoln Central, as orienteers competed for the various ‘silverware’ up for grabs on the night, including the top 9 runners in the prestigious cup final. As the dust settled on some fantastic racing, Liam Harrington took his first podium of the series, scoring an impressive 190 points. Previous week’s winner, Paul Murgatroyd, also joined him on the same score, but was just over 20 seconds slower, with week one’s winner, Philip-Johnston Davis (180 points) returning to the podium narrowly behind these two in third place.

And so, onto the key duels for the Cup final, age handicapped as usual… Paul Murgatroyd managed to secure the premier title, holding off previous champion, Anne Gibbs by only two points, with Pete Harris, a strong contender across the series, finishing off the podium places in third. Philip Johnston-Davis secured the Trophy win, David Hunter took the Plate award and Marcus Lancastle grabbed the Vase prize. Handicap results from the evening’s race can be viewed here. The final series table, showing all the results from last night’s finals can be found here.

We hope everyone enjoyed their FtN experience and we look forward to seeing everyone at the Spring Series, starting on Thursday 31st March at South Common!
