Yes it’s our favourite time of year – Sprint Into Spring! Saturday October 20 sees the debut of Cornish College in Bangholme, for Race 2. Although classed as a campus map, this school has much more to offer than just buildings. It has a small central campus with lots of ramps and stairs; lakes, bridges and an island; a golf course; lots of trees and open ground; lots of fences; and lots of animals! Be prepared to meet alpacas, chickens, and other assorted farmyard friends as you navigate through your course. Click here for all the details.
Race 1 at Caulfield Grammar rewarded the competitors who slowed down a little and avoided errors. 28 DROC members turned out, and had some great results. Asha Steer and Sarah Love have green jerseys for the winners of the Sprint leg on the Mo and Sally courses. Asha was third on the Mo Womens course, while Peter Hobbs and Simon Rouse were in the top 15 on the huge Mo Mens course; Nick Maddock, Martin Steer and Ian Davies were all in the top half of a very competitive bunch. James Love was 5th on Sally, while first time sprinter Andrew Perkins was 8th. “That was the best fun I’ve ever had!” he said later. Sarah Davies buried herself to take second on Sally, while Sarah Love was 6th, Amber Louw was 10th, and Debbie Dodd was 12th. Sammy Love was 4th on the Usain course.
