UK Elite Orienteering League
RACING RETURNS: CARTER-DAVIES AND SMITHARD FASTEST OUT OF LOCKDOWNMegan Carter-Davies (Swansea Bay Orienteering Club) won the first major post-lockdown race on Saturday 17th April in Nottingham 43 seconds clear of Alice Leake (Airienteers) in second. The Welshwoman took the lead on the fourth control and never looked back over the 3.6 km sprint course. Cecilie Andersen of Bristol Orienteering Klub finished third.Carter-Davies did not have it all her own way with Leake taking a number of fastest splits and arguably running quicker at times but not always finding the best routes. Charlotte Ward (Humberside & Lincolnshire) matched Leake for much of the course however only after a costly mis-read of the overprint early on.Ex-international Dave Schorah planned a 14-15 minute winning time at the instruction of selectors to simulate WOC-length courses - they were won just seven seconds apart in 14:25 and 14:18. Route-choices started from leg one, into a set of accommodation blocks, before crossing the campus to loop around the western side. A map-flip revealed more testing legs that rewarded runners assessing all options as they fatigued towards the finish.In the Men’s Chris Smithard (Forth Valley Orienteers) started fast and finished fastest, 11 seconds ahead of Nathan Lawson (Octavian Droobers). Jonny Crickmore (South Yorkshire Orienteers) pipped Will Gardner (Octavian Droobers) for third.With injury and illness leading into the race Lawson and Crickmore could have been expected to be a little further off. Both ran strongly and executed well to keep within grasping distance whilst Gardner never fully recovered from an early mistake.Travel restrictions meant the race did not score in the UK Elite League but it was a selection race for internationals in Czech Republic, Switzerland and Italy later this year. The 2021 League proper starts on 15th May at Witherslack in the Lake District where we’ll see what happens when Scotland-based athletes are thrown into the mix.Results: noc-uk.org/events/result?id=643Maps: noc-uk.org/gadget/rg2/#197Photos (David Olivant): noc-uk.org/members/Gallery?ymd=20210417 ...
