Navigation leg statement

Dear All,

I can't believe a week has passed since the Relays 2017!

We are now ready to publish the splits for the event, so please follow the link above.

We are aware of some of the issues raised particularly around Leg 3 and in particular CP2 to CP3. As the organising team we felt that we had taken reasonable measures to avoid this situation by stating at registration and the race briefing that walls/fences should not be climbed and crossing points should be used. Unfortunately, that message wasn't clear enough and in hindsight we should have taken greater measures to try and avert this situation. A number of solutions have been put forward and these have all been noted and should we organise the relays in future we will endeavour to ensure there is no repeat. We acknowledge that there were a couple of other areas where we could have sharpened up with our instructions and have a better understanding of how maps are going to be read in the heat of racing.

Following a number of discussions with the race referee on the day it was concluded that the race results would stand as published.

In places there are some missed checkpoint times. We have looked through all the times and leg splits and concluded that the most likely explanation is that in the heat of racing the tag wasn't correctly registered. These results will stand also.

We sincerely hope that these issues didn't overly affect your enjoyment of the day which on the whole has been received very well. Moving forward hopefully we can ensure in future years we learn and deploy additional measures, particularly to Leg 3, which would avoid these situations occurring.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Regards,

Stuart
Eryri Harriers
