OD Local Event League: Results after 3 events
Last week’s Atherstone event was the third local event of the winter. A minimum attendance at two events is required in order to get a league score and 30 people have now done at least two out of the three held to date so the league table is now looking more meaningful. Bruce and Liz are the leading Droobers in the field separated by Doug Dickinson from DVO. Like several other people, they have completed all three events which, at the moment, inflates their score as other people have only completed two events.
The next event in January is Burton Dassett next Saturday evening, followed by Everdon Stubbs in February and War Memorial Park in March. It is also likely that another Informal MapRun event will be run at Newbold Comyn during the half-term week at the end of February so keep an eye out for that.

For those interested, points are scored based on your time compared to the average of the fastest three people on your course and you are awarded an extra 10 points for each event you enter. Handicap points are then added based on BOF age groups with 4% extra points allocated per age group below and above M/W21. Organisers are automatically allocated points on any event that they organise equal to their best points scored in the other events. For the moment, points in your best ten events will count towards your league score but this may be reduced a little depending on how many events actually get included in the programme.
