Peak Raid AnytimeAfter a strong performance around the Hartington course David Pettit of DVO is at the top of the men’s leaderboard. David is just 20 points ahead of Edward de Salis Young in second place.David commented, "I love the Peak Raid MapRuns! The lack of time pressure at the route-planning stage means you can really take the time to study the map and pick the most efficient set of controls for your own level of fitness. I generally try to pack in the toughest climbs and most complex navigation in the first half, and leave some easy running on larger, clearer tracks for the last few km when the legs and brain are tired! I also try to plan in some flexibility to shorten or extend the route at the end, depending on progress, and estimate in advance where I expect to be after 60 and 90 minutes to help with that decision."Pic: David on a recent trip to Scotland. ...

Peak Raid Anytime Congratulations to Amy Baron-Hall who is currently leading the women's race with a combined score of 740 points and a time of 3:58:12 after Race 1 and 2. Emily Thompson is currently in second place and just 20 points behind Amy.Amy commented, "I was so shocked to see I was currently in first place, I have run fitness at the moment! But loving the events. I've become a bit of a lazy navigator over the years of using a GPS and mainly running trails from home. So the MapRun events are great for getting me out and practicing my navigation. I'm Autistic and struggle in busy places so love that I can head out at quiet times to complete them."Results here: explorerevents.co.uk/peak-raid-map-run-2022-spring-summer-series/ ...
