PlannerI have lived in Nottingham for less than two years and had already done three events on Bramcote. Therefore when I was asked to plan this event I knew it would be a challenge to keep it fresh for those of you who have been here longer. To do this I aimed for some complex short legs and where possible, some longer/route choice legs, mainly using the hills as the round/straight option. I also wanted to ensure that most people got to the best of the area, even if that meant a high number of controls on each course, some criss-crossing of the area and two-part maps (has short green ever had two maps, two time-outs and 19 controls all within 3km?). Despite having a feeling that our local top elite/M21s would run sub-6 min/k, I felt the hills would be steep for the majority, so I aimed for the lower end of distance range. Hopefully this all came together, to give you all a deceptively challenging physical and technical run.
