“Wish I’d done a longer course!”; “Can I have another go?”; “How soon can we come back and do this again?” – these comments were heard repeatedly after Sunday’s amazing Indoor-Outdoor Sprint at Monash Uni. As the first starters bent over their maps, the spectators dashed inside to see the mayhem unfold, and soon we were treated to competitors heading every which way – up, down, and around – as they came to grips with navigating four levels of the incredible building. It was quickly obvious that speed was not the solution – it was all about knowing exactly where you needed to be, before beginning the next leg. Dashing in and out of classrooms, dodging bemused students, popping out onto a courtyard four storeys in the air, avoiding the “paddle pop” marshals who stopped us going the wrong way – all part of the fun. It was over way too quickly. Luckily we had an outdoor sprint to follow, which was almost as complex, and equally as enjoyable. We’ll do our best to make it happen again soon.
