Footpath Relay 21st June 2014

I am looking for 20 volunteers to run the Footpath relay on Saturday 21st June, based at Ilam Hall.  Legs with lengths/climb here.  Names to me with preference for legs as soon as possible please.  It is a handicap event so there is a place for everyone who would like to run – we can always enter a second team.

JK Relay teams

JK Relay teams as currently declared here.  No doubt there will be changes yet.  Note the long walk from car parking and the 20 minute call up.

I will be collecting monies on the day (£7 senior, £3 junior exact money or better still cheques to DVO)  (The club is paying half your fee).

East Midlands League Event – Matlock Moor 19/1/14

Results here. Routegadget here.  Routegadget 2 (which doesn’t require Java) here  Winsplits online here.  Some help on RG2 on Results now uploaded to British Orienteering web site for ranking.  To quote from Routegadget UKs site
The original RG used Java (not related to Javascript) which runs as a separate application within your browser. Java has been used to hack into computers and is now considered a security risk because it allows access to bits of your computer that allow it to be infected. RG itself isn’t a security risk, but because the Java language it is written in is used by the bad guys, newer computers/operating systems have been gradually restricting its ability to run. So if you have an old computer/operating system and you don’t regularly update it you are probably best off using the original RG, but if you have newer stuff and update it regularly you will probably get a much better user experience from RG2.
