Another success for SuffOC Juniors, this time at the Peter Palmer Team Relay event. Our Club Captain, Sarah, sends us this report....
The event was held at Ratby Woodlands near Leicester on 11th Sept starting at 5 am. The team was as follows:
Leg 1 Night, Red course - Matthew Clarke
Leg 2 Dawn, Red course - Bronwen Mansel
Leg 3 Light Green course - Ben Hammond
Leg 4 Orange course - Chloe Cracknell
Leg 5 Yellow course - Barney Steventon Barnes, Ben Clarke, Jack Hammond
Leg 6 Green course - Tim Harrison
The team finished 8th overall but were the fastest from a small club so were awarded the Norwich Anniversary Trophy. It was a close competition between SUFFOC and EPOC, who were about 20 minutes ahead of us at the end of leg 5, but, due to a fantastic run by Tim, we edged into the lead. Full results are available on the Leicestershire OC website.
Thanks to Alison, John and Jeremy for transport and supervision of the team. It was a fantastic experience for all the Juniors and a tiring day for everyone.
