EML Event – Grimsthorpe Castle; Sunday 20th March

A beautiful spring day and a great country estate, with a mix of fast, runnable woodland, contour detail and open park and quarry areas, made for a superb morning’s orienteering for the 120+ runners who made the trip to Grimsthorpe Castle estate in southern Lincolnshire. Whilst the area isn’t big enough for a full-blown long distance race, it has sufficient intricacy to make for a subtle middle distance event and the planner, Paul Murgatroyd, made the most of the lack of vegetation at this time of the year to keep the orienteers moving on the straight line wherever possible. Course winners on the day were:

White – George Rennie (LEI)
Yellow – Perdigao Family (NOC)
Orange – Ben Hardy (LEI)
Light Green – Charile Rennie (LEI)
Short Green – Sasha Barker-Pilsworth (RAFO/LOG)
Green – Bruce Bryant (OD)
Blue – Paul Taylor (EPOC)
Brown – Richard Dearden (NOC)
