|Day/night events please the punters|
Paul Cuthbert delivered a much-praised course for the night/day events weekend out at Tallaganda State Forest. Swelled by nearly 200 ANU Inward Bound competitors, the night event proved very popular, with 82 teams in total braving the dark side of the weekend. Some hardy souls (and soles?) backed up on the Sunday among the 35 teams in the day event. While several recent weeks of rain made for tough going through the denser patches of forest undergrowth, the weather gods mostly smiled benignly on the weekend, with just one rancorous hail storm thrown in on the Sunday afternoon for good measure.
In the five hour night event, Kieran Macdonell and Craig Cowan tied with Thomas Etheridge and William Tribe on 600 points, but took out first place by finishing 2 minutes earlier. The tussle for course clearability between course setter and elite runners was won by the setter on this occasion, though Martin Dent and Brad Hetharia had a strong win in the six hour day event accumulating an impressive 1040 of a possible 1500 points. Kieran Macdonnell backed up impressively after his win in the night event, partnering with Dane Roberts to finish second.
Many thanks to Paul and event co-ordinator Stephen Goggs and the other volunteers for two excellent events.
