Quad MatchEpping Forest EastWed 24 May, 2023

Near: Epping
Level of event: Local
Type of event: Race, Juniors



The time on control 105 was wrong, so runners on the green course will have seen large negative splits for control 9. This has been corrected. Similarly, early runners using older dibbers may have seen a negative overall time - again this has been corrected.

Sorry for the delay in publishing the inter-club results (a 5-way competition, so calling it QUAD doesn't seem right). Previously we have totalled the points across all runners in a club, but this seems unfair because of the very different number of participants from the clubs. Four of the five teams fielded 7 runners, so after some discussion we have chosen to sum the scores of the best 7 runners per club (100 points for first place, 9 for second, etc. based on handicap-adjusted times according to BO weightings). The high number of retirements (those courses were hard!) means that CHIG and DrongO only have 5 counting runners. For full details, see here.
