Juniors met on 8th May for the third GO Bananas training session, and faced their own map memory challenges. They had specially designed courses which brought them back to our base to ensure that no one went missing. Again thanks to Geoff for designing an array of courses to suit all skills levels.

The next GO Bananas event will be a summer picnic at Newlands Corner, 6 pm on 9th June.

Thank you to all those who ran at Hampstead Heath especially those who ran up/down. I know a few were unable to make it due to the rise of Covid 19 in the UK. Team results show that we won the heat somewhat more convincingly that in 2019, 117 points ahead of DFOK and 120 ahead of MV.

COVID UPDATE: The 2020 final was cancelled, the plan is that all qualifiers for 2020 will be invited to complete in the 2021 final.
