Freezing Street Event

SOC‘s second street event of the year took place in Chandler’s Ford on a freezing cold evening. Roger Pleasant had drawn up a new map, extending the area to cover a section to the east of the Hiltingbury triangle. With a good spread of controls it was by no means obvious that it was possible to get all of the controls and choosing a route was tricky.

I started off slowly as, the faster I ran, the colder my hands felt! After about half an hour I’d warmed up a bit but had also realised that I wasn’t going to get all of the controls. It involved a bit of a sprint to get back to the King Rufus in time but I just made it with four controls outstanding. Jon Forster picked up one more but forfeited the extra points by being back late.
