Peel Pursuit Summer Handicap Race 2020

We have decided to run the Peel Pursuit, the usual Chasers’ summer handicap run round Brocton Coppice usually run in June, as a virtual race this year.  Dave and Neil have recce’d the senior and junior course and set them up on the MaprunF app.
The trophy for the handicap winner and fastest runner will be decided after the courses close on 6th September.  Anyone can run the course, but only Walton Chasers members will be eligible for the trophies.
Two of the paths have been narrowed by bracken but this has been pushed back.  Not ideal for running but we’ll try and keep the paths passable.  NB: this in not a ‘normal’ orienteering course, just a run around a prescribed route.

And the results are in!  Not too many competing for the trophies this year, but congratulations to the winners – to Andy Yeates for the fastest time, and to Sally Hughes for winning the handicap race. 2020 Peel Pursuit Results

WCH MapRunF Summer Series 3 – Stafford Castle

The 3rd Chasers MapRun is now live.   This time we visit Stafford, and it’s (ruined) castle.  There are 3 courses this time – a short, long and a 45 minute score  All are within the grounds of the castle.  Run any (or all) of the courses whenever suits you – there is nothing out there to mark the controls so it really is a virtual course.  Simply print the course you’d like to run, download the MapRunF app (Google Play or AppStore), and follow the instructions in the attached sheet.  Enjoy!
NB: The visitor centre and toilets are currently closed.
