Nine HALO members took part in the the LOG Chase and Sprint event held at Lincoln University on 11 August. The event was won by Liam Harrington (M21) in 35:28, closely followed by HALO’s Charlotte Ward (W20) in 36:47 with her father Brian (M45) in 3rd place in 42:36. It is rumoured that Brian lost 4 minutes at a level crossing when the barriers came down to let a train through but there does not appear to be one shown on the map! The full results can be found on the LOG website http://www.logonline.org.uk/Result/2011/Uni Chasing Sprints 11.08.11/
edit (Brian Ward) it’s the Route Choice leg on the Chase – 1 to 2 – see below
The route which exits East through the Car Park, skirts North of the purple Out of Bounds and South of the large building next to the Railway and then over the (river) bridge before turning North to the crossing.
It probably would not have been so bad had not Liam (off 2 minutes before) and Charlotte (off one minute before) both managed to get through the barrier successfully!
Gosh I was cross!! and yes – checking the GPS track it was a loss of 4 minutes!
