Live results should also be available on the LiveOL app

Top class event (with Waratahs) planned by Paul and Tracy Marsh, the heat was unpleasant but most people coped OK. Thanks for coming. Congratulations to the Metro League winners.

 

Paula's whopping Big Foot Over 60's Great NOSH victory

Paula Shingler brought home the mug (or whatever they give out these days) in today's 48th Great Northside Orienteers and Social Harriers (NOSH) Footrace, with a 13 minute margin in the Women's 60 plus age category for the 16km race.

Paula is making the most of her new age group, having just turned 60 in May. She also won the W60's at the Australian 3-days, held in the Snowy Monaro over Easter. She had the only Big Feet that took out an Easter 3-days win.

Nea Shingler levels Cathy McComb's all-time record with 4 wins - Queensland's Ryan Gray wins mens race

Nea Shingler broke out of training camp to defend her title, 4-peat and level with Cathy McComb with the all-time record of 4 wins at Big Foot Sprints. Ryan Gray came back from a 32 second leg 1 deficit to verhaul Cooper Horley and win the men's division to win by 7 seconds.

Short but technical course setting at Ingleside Scout Camp by Jock Davis provided a great afternoon and early evening of head-to-head racing all the way through the field. Thanks to Jock and to Tracy Marsh for organising. Also to the their family members and various Big Feet for helping.

Metro League wrap

Thanks to everyone who came to the St Ives showgrounds today, great weather and a variety of orienteering experiences.

National selectors stymie Big Foot Metro League hopes

Club captain Alastair George slammed the national selectors today as he realised that he would have to field weakened teams for this weekend's Metro League event at St. Ives Showground. Casting his eyes over the four (4) Big Feet selected for the world champs he must have wept in his Grød as he realised that Big Foot's greatest prank ever, substituting the ML team into the WOC team would leave the team unmanned at St Ives.

Appeals to the WOC organisers to alter the date (again) have fallen on deaf ears
