Lincolnshire Challenge Shield Report

The Lincs Challenge Shield event last night saw LOG relinquish their hold on the trophy after their hat-trick of victories from 2014-2016. With only 14 possible counters out of the required 15, due to a scarcity of juniors and seniors, the club were always up against it and the nail in the coffin was delivered in the chase when our erstwhile publicity office decided to mp 😉

Nevertheless, some performances on the night were noteworthy, with Liam and Paul M both delivering the maximum 100m points available in their classes and other strong runs came from Ben (96pts), Paul B (95), John (94), Tanya (92), Craig (91) & Mark (91). Also contributing points to the team tally were Hannah, Ali, Amanda, Marcus, Robert and Helen. Thanks to all who came along to support the cause and hopefully we can recapture the trophy next year on home soil. The results from the event can be found here

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)

One item of kit left – Parameta G top (please email: sean@logonline.org.uk).

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