Week 9 – TBH Juniors – Treasure Hunt

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.
