ESOC Sprint O - Corstorphine Hill and Lauriston Castle



The ESOC Sprint O is a Prologue followed by a Chase, both of which were excellently planned by Crawford Lindsay.



The Prologue took place at Corstorphine Hill and was 2.2k with 85m of climb and 12 controls. Marcus Pinker did the fastest time of 12.39.

The Chase took place at Lauriston Castle and was 2.3k with 50m of climb and 29 controls. Gaffling worked really well to separate runners. Marcus was passed by Chris Galloway, but a mispunch by Chris meant that Marcus was victorious, just holding off Will Hensman who recorded the fastest time in the Chase. I also mispunched (number 20) and completely overlooked, and so didn't visit, number 12.
