RIVER BEND RENMARK
28 March 1998
This fun event was held on a small area mapped at 1:5000 and including Riverbend Caravan Park and adjacent river flats. Thirty controls of varying difficulty were set out. At the mass start all teams had five minutes to decide who would punch which controls. All teams started at the same time. All 3 team members had to finish together.
Runners were seeded into 3 categories - very fast, fast and not so fast -by the organisers. the categories did not relate to world standards but to the standard of the entrants. The organisers also used a little creativity so that there were equal numbers in each category.
On the day the top few teams managed to combine brilliant planning with incredibly fast error-free running and so deserved the honour and glory which was lavishly provided for the winners.
