Lincoln City Race 2016: Report & Results

The Lincoln City race on Sunday 14th August, held around the historic centre of the city for the first time in three years, saw a good field of nearly 200 runners take to the courses planned by LOG’s Liam Harrington and ably supported by controller, Brian Slater (HALO).

The weather held fair and led to some fast paced orienteering around the packed city centre, with the later starters, in particular, needing to be mindful of where the greatest congestions would occur. This didn’t prevent the following from heading up their respective classes though:

Men’s Open: Nathan Lawson (OD)
Women’s Open: Liz Heaton (LEI)
Men’s Vet: Martin Ward (SYO)
Women’s Vet: Tanya Taylor (LOG)
Men’s SuperVet: Paul Turner (SELOC)
Women’s SuperVet: Lindsey Knox (RR)
Men’s UltraVet: Martin Wilson (BKO)
Women’s UltraVet: Hilary Palmer (NOC)
Men’s Junior: Alfie Bullus (OD)
Women’s Junior: Ashleigh Howells (LEI)

The final results can be found here, with Routegadget to draw and compare routes here.

4th Wolds’ Mini-Mountain Marathon

Around 35 competitors took to the tracks and paths around the picturesque setting of the Lincolnshire Wolds for the 4th running of the annual LOG Mini-Mountain Marathon event today, hosted as usual by the White Hart in Tetford. The weather was much kinder than the past two years, with the sun only beginning to emerge in the last hour, and the ‘reverse’ score set-up meant most of the runners collected healthy totals!

Congratulations to Liam Harrington, who took top honours, pipping second placed, Andy Stevenson, and third placed, John Mather, by 20 and 26pts respectively. Top 3 women were Linda Hayles, Clare Hanna and Sarah Edwards, all tied on 280 points, but split by timing, with Linda just over 6 minutes ahead of Clare and Sarah another 2 minutes back. Results from the event are available now here with Routegadget also now available here to plot and compare routes with others.

Lincs Challenge Shield – Report & Results

The seventh annual running of the Lincs Challenge Shield (LOG v HALO) took place on Weds 1st June at RAF Cranwell, a venue LOG have not used for four years and fresh to many of the competitors. First up on the evening was the 2.7k Prologue course, which gave the runners a mix of urban and woodland challenges, with the main focus being on route choice and fast decision making. In the juniors, LOG’s elder runners, including Craig Lucas, Hazel Williams and Jacob Swinbourne held sway and set the team up for a good score. This was duly converted, with the strong running senior trio of Liam Harrington, Philip Johnston Davis and Craig Alexander claiming 3 of the top 5 spots. At the halfway stage, LOG held a 21pt lead over their Lincolnshire rivals.

The mass start 2.8k Chase then followed, with some fearsome head-to-head competition unfolding. Packs formed, and then broke, at regular intervals in the contoured woodland and the gaffles and butterfly loops kept everyone on their toes. Emerging from the forest and running hard into the open parkland, there was no let up and LOG’s strongest runners continued to hold sway. In the veterans’ class, Justin Williams and Robert McNab followed up the earlier performances of the others with superb runs and thus LOG sealed their third consecutive victory by 1381pts to 1320pts.

Results from the event, including scores for the LOG Spring series, are now available here, and the final series table is here. Congratulations to the Spring series winners: Marsaili Jolly (Short); Tanya Taylor (Long) and Liam Harrington (Technical).
