They say that orienteering is the thinking person’s running. Well, we certainly saw plenty of thinking and puzzling as the juniors took on the challenge of the TBH Treasure Hunt – specially prepared by David Daniels and Dave Moir (DDDM).
I think everyone would agree it was a fantastic challenge that required plenty of athleticism and mental dexterity. I also think most would agree it was a lot of fun – maybe less the ones who tried to navigate in the fog and mist of Friday night and, I for one, strongly regretted suggesting that I’d follow on my bike. Running up Cow Hill whilst pushing a bike was not something I had in mind when I set off for a gentle cycle!
Congratulations to the Shutdown Striders who navigated their way to a 1st place finish with an impressive average time of just 29:51. Second were the Rainbow Rockets with 37:00 and third were the Lockdown Legends with an average of 49:48.

It was a fantastic event and I think Henry called it right as we descended off Cow Hill (me still attempting to run whilst pushing a bike) when he said “This is the best fun”.
Thanks to DDDM for their effort and creativity.
