All photos have been collected and can be found here, many thanks to Aoife, Daniel, Jana, Chloe and Julien for their paparazzi skills!
First and foremost I want to say a massive thank and congratulations to the entire committee for pulling off what has been called (quotes):
"Surprisingly well organised"
"A really high quality sprint race"
"Such huge effort and time went into this"
So really well done!
Firstly I want to thank Clíona, Rebecca and Laura for planning and putting out controls. To James and Christoph for helping take in controls and battle that tent. To Andrew Cox for updating the map, lending us gear, and helping out on the day. To Fiona et.al for putting the quiz together and running it. To John McCullough for lending us even more gear (turns out you need a lot of gear to run an orienteering event!!!) To Julien for all his hard work with posters, social media and Facebook work. To the entire Cox family, who thanks to me got dragged into either marshalling or photographing runners!! To Ciara, Aaron, Aoife and Daniel who put in monumentous work on the day in numerous roles.To Finn van Gelderen and Conor Short for their work on the amazing promotional video! And to everyone who came out and orienteered!
I know that's a lot of people, but it took a huge team effort and I'm so proud of all of us!
Some great results from TCD with Bart (our urban sprint specialist) finishing 3rd on the very competitive Medium course with Julien in 5th place.
Well done also to James and Christoph for coming 9th and 11th respectively on a very elite-filled long course!
