Peel Pursuit Race & Club BBQ

Tues 26th June is the Peel Pursuit handicap run and club BBQ.

The run is a straight run (no navigation needed), with the slowest off first and the fastest last, so that in theory, everyone finishes at the same time.  The grid reference for the start is SJ975194.  The Pursuit route for adults will NOT be taped this year and people are encouraged to recce the route in advance.  Maps of the course will be available for use on the night and a PDF of the route is attached to this p.  The senior 4 km course is the same as last year.  The junior course will be taped.

The start time will be 7 pm plus handicap times.  Let the organiser know if you plan to run so he can work out the handicap times or any juniors want to run a short course.

The barbecue (BYO) follows at Jon’s house – bring your food / drink and deckchair (and probably a brolly as it usually rains!!).
More details have been e-mailed to all members.

Chasers at the Showground Relays

Chasers were represented at the 2nd Showground Relays last night by just the one team this year.  The 4 x 2-mile relay used to be the Shugborough Relays until it’s move last year.  Chasers have had teams entered in every race since it started in 1988, with Andy keeping his record on doing them all – now reaching the 30-year marker.  This year’s team of Dan, Andy, Dave and John were 9th in the Male Super-Vet Team, just 70 seconds down on 6th place.

Domination Sprint Results

Well done and thank you to the Walton High School O club who brilliantly planned and organised the  Sprint Evening around Stafford town centre. There was a Domination Sprint race for all, followed by a chasing sprint for those who had bundles of energy left over, or a non-chasing sprint course for those who had the motivation!

A good time was had by all, and congratulations to Dan who took the Domination victory and Al who took the Chasing Sprint victory after Dans map was suspiciously sabotaged.

Results are here on Routegadet. Please put your route up so the Juniors can get feedback for their planning.

Updated Domination scores will follow, and the next race in the series is on Tuesday 26th June with the Peel Pursuit and BBQ from Jonathan Howells house – look out for details soon.
