The only point of note is that those who ran individual runs have had their total time adjusted in the summary results, but not the splits.

Planner's Comments

This was the first event I have planned, and a relay 'to boot' - great fun!. Fortunately it's an area I know well from years of training on 'the Heath' every Thursday with the Klubb which made things a little easier. However my thanks should go to Glen Jones and Ronan & Julie Cleary who 'held my hand' both from a planning and IT (i.e. OCAD) perspective - most appreciated. 

Once again we were blessed with great weather on the Heath (which to a point made up for the dreadful conditions at our Holmbury Badge Event earlier this year)! and it was almost a pleasure getting up at 6am to hang the controls. Thank you to Pete, Graham and Louise for helping me do this so efficiently, but also a big thanks to Neil Brooks who was a fantastically organised 'Organiser' throughout the run up to the event and the day itself. 

As far as the courses were concerned, thanks to all for their feedback post race. I guess the most common comments were 'I wasn't expecting it to be this hard', 'you needed to stay in touch with the map at all times as relocation is tricky', 'more complex than I thought it would be'. I guess not all of those from the bigger clubs south of the Thames have come to Hampstead before, and of the London 'Parks' I would rate this as the most variable with some great features to plan with and plenty of variety - I hope you found some legs thought provoking and will consider coming back again! 

Lastly I would be interested in any other thoughts ( you have about the way the courses 'hung together' but also any specific comments about specific controls. I am keen to learn from this experience, but also feedback will help us make any enhancements to the map. 

Lastly I hope you all enjoyed the day and congrats again to all our winners from Southdowns and SLOW.

Organiser's Comments

It’s a sunny Sunday in May, you’re running on one of London’s most famous open spaces, and the place will be teeming with tourists, and you’ll have the hassle of having to find a parking space …. but, you’ll be running for your club, so it will be worth it …………… however, you arrive to find that the Corporation of London has reserved you a parking space, and even laid-on a couple of gate-men to ensure your car is kept safely away from the non-orienteering public, and, it’s all included in your £6 entry fee – what a bargain! We do hope that those of you that came to Hampstead for the first time found the experience a pleasant one, but we must warn you that it’s unlikely we’ll ever be as lucky with the parking again, so hope you made the most of it!

I hope you found the registration, pre-event and on-the-day processes relatively painless, and despite some very late entries, we did manage to give everyone who enquired a run, including the four individuals who just wanted to run one or all three courses.

Special thanks go to Paul Maskell from the Corporation of London who gave us permission to use the Heath (and to be truthful, laid on the car park for us), and to the usual suspects for helping make your runs happen on the day.
