Western and Hills host #2 event in Sydney West Series at Marayong

Monday, 23 January 2012

Western & Hills Orienteers hosted event #2 in the Sydney West Series at Marayong on Sunday 22 January.  Changeable weather made for unpleasant conditions for organisers but cool running for participants.  Planner Steve Holloway challenged  the best to get all the points on offer but winner James McQuillan from the local club topped the scores with 530 points. One competitor did get all controls but forfeited the win with severe time penalties.

The next event in the Series is on 5 February at UWS Kingswood.

Big point scores at Western Sydney Summer Series opening event

Monday, 9 January 2012

A crowd turned up at the first in the Sydney West Series on Sunday 8th January to enjoy a cool morning run around the scenic suburb of Crestwood.  Chris Crane's carefully planned 45 minute score event gave both experienced and newer runners a chance to gain some big points, and although no-one managed to get all 600 points on offer, there were many who scored over 400.  This was a thinking man's event with even clear decisions about route choices made at the start, being re-evaluated as the 45 minutes ticked away.

The next event in the Sydney West Series is on the 22nd January at Breakfast Creek, Marayong.
