Nearest town: Burnley, Lancs


Simple results including penalty points

A bit of a muddle with the control numbers!  Sorry about that.
Andy has "corrected" the results by amending to the actual control box numbers.  Routegadget is now available - You will need to manually enter your name and time when drawing your route.

Judging by the post-event discussion and the number of complaints about stinging nettles, you must have all enjoyed your runs.  Some impressive results.
Whilst collecting controls that were surrounded by long grass it was possible to see the wide variety of routes to and from the control. Interesting - just as the planner hoped!

The League Table drawn up by points value after one week is available under Downloadable Documents below  Best three events out of four will contribute to your final tally.  Overall winners will be determined after event 4.  Just for the record, in the week 1 league table results for Towneley East I have had to deduct points from three competitors who took controls out of order - two on MINI and one on MAXI.  Remeber for next week:  vistit all or any 10s, before 15s, before 20s.

Next week the control numbers will be as intended:  10 points 101 to 107, 15 points 111 to 117, 20 points 121 to 127.  Good luck every one.

About the area/map

Townley Park, Burnley

Towneley Park near the centre of Burnley is large and varied, with Towneley House and visitor centre as the centrepiece.  The area is crossed by formal paths in the open areas and informal paths through rough scrub, rhododendrons and semi-mature plantations that surround the playing fields and two golf courses.  There are a lot of water features, streams, ditches, ponds, marshes and the main river.  Don't be surprised if you encounter a deep ravine, a tunnel, a memorial or a route choice through a building.  Winning times are usually fast.
