Event Centre North Bransholme Community Centre
From Humber Bridge take road to Beverley and go along it straight across 5 roundabouts (or maybe better to go round first) some 6 or 7 miles along. When come to second set traffic lights immediately outside Beverley turn right onto A1079, southern bypass heading towards Hull - some five miles. Straight across 4 roundabouts crossing River Hull en route and Asda on left after fourth roundabout. At fifth roundabout turn last left and, passing Kingswood School on right, turn right at next roundabout.
The post code is HU7 5DD and to get to it you turn right onto Cumbrian Way - as stated before - then left onto Lothian Way, which is signposted at the junction to the North Bransholme Health Centre and the Community Centre.
Post race analysis (and food) will be at the Kingswood (HU7 3DD) on roundabout near Asda and opposite new Next shop.
|Report||Some very fast times were to be seen at Bransholme North, one of our top technical areas, produced by Neil in 2017. Mary had set a shorter course than normal for our last 'Night Urban' of the series. However, the challenge was still to keep 'in tune' with the map and terrain through-out. Those numerous snickets/narrow passages and endless repetitions of housing and parking lots can bring on dizziness.|
Congrats to Brian W, Peter H and Alex who were our podium winners. Brian's birthday cake was delicious, Peter H was just back from gastroenteritis and Alex was over the moon with his first 'full house'. Other notable '200 pointers' were Peter S., BS., Chris, and, on their second visit to HALO Urbans, Graham's team from East Hull Harriers. The Harriers was my club in the 70s and Mary's 'long-life-Club' to date.
Amanda, first lady in again, would have visited all controls had confusion not set in. The description on the map clarified the change over but the separate sheet was different. I had edited the one on the map after exporting to OCAD which said 'START THE SCORE EVENT - TURN OVER'. The separate sheet was printed directly from Purple Pen course software and showed 'GO TO FINISH'. Whoops! Apologies.
It was good to see Corinne who manage a creditable 140 points on her first 'Night Urban' event. Corinne is well known to those who attended Beverley training evenings.
All checkpionts were dismantled efficiently and in tact so thanks to the community and the collectors, both Brians, Peter (Chair) and Paul.
Well done Mary for an enjoyable evening and cozy accommodation at the North Bransholme Community Centre whose staff were more than helpful. They would provide food another time if we wished.
