Comments from Trevor Ould (Planner)
It’s been over 10 years since I last planned an event, so it was good to have another opportunity.
To give a different perspective & to avoid a loop to get on the downs, on Blue/Red courses, I returned using the fields along Strawberry Lane. The feedback from runners was this worked. In the future the National Trust is looking to create permissive paths, so options could be increased for future events.
To enable the larger scale Mottistone Common Map to be used I shortened the Green to Short Green. Again this seemed to be well received.
I hope I got the controls in the right place, where the map was difficult to interpret. I ensured the controls were hung high & visible so any possible error on my part would not have had too much of an adverse effect on competitors’ times.
Thanks to Pete for printing the maps & acting as light touch controller, Glyn for Health & Safety advice & removing stubs of an old fence and Eileen for Registration.
