Cuppers Results

After a brief spell of difficulty in convincing control box 105 that it is in fact the Finish, John has successfully produced this year's Cuppers Results.

Congratulations to James Meiklejohn, Carrie Beadle and Eleanor Sheekey of Peterhouse who stormed to a four minute victory (1:09:11)! Honourable mentions also to Selwyn (4th) and Emmanuel (3rd) for a strong showing, and especially to Christ's (2nd, 5th), who managed to turn out two full teams.

In the individual competition, Carrie Beadle successfully retained her title with a narrow victory over Zuzka Strakova of Homerton (winning time: 18:22). The men's individual was less closely contested thanks to a dominant 18:07 from newcomer Paul Pružina (Jesus), which put him almost two minutes clear of anyone else in the field. Meanwhile in the Reindeer category, Helen the CUOC Reindeer put in a clean run of 1:09, guaranteeing her the top spot.

Thanks to Sam Lambrick for planning this year's competition. Both courses were accessible to a wide range of orienteers, with only #seven mispunches from a large field of competitors. For those of you wanting to practice reading control descriptions, please come along to this week's Coe Fen MicrO!

In other news, the 2016/17 competition for the coveted Patrick-Elder Trophy is now underway. Zuzka Strakova scored a solid 1097 points with the fastest finish from control 100 (40s), while Rory Burford and Rowan Lee each scored 1137 points with run-ins of 32s from control 97. Special congratulations to Zuzka, Rowan, Sophie, Emma, Jonathan and Andrea, who all put in PB-earning performances.

Due insufficient competitors sharing her run-in (103-F), Helen the Reindeer was unable to score.
