I was thinking of coming along for some sprint training, but the details say the map is 1:7500...is this true/is there any way to get around it?
This is not true. Map is 1:4000. And yes, it was a pain to convert!
So, do come, I planned a 2.9k ~22 control sprint course. We will have spare maps and there are no boring road runs.
I don't accept there's any difference between M21 sprint and W55+ urban. It's just that most urbans can't be bothered putting out the extra flags.
Brilliant, thanks! So I should enter the W55+?
I've just had my diversity training, so I know not to be lured into making ageist or genderist remarks. However, you also have the option of entering "Elite Sprint", which is what I had in mind when I planned it.
Main thing to know is there are slippery bits, and the light green forest is fine to go through (could be white, but I don't like using white on sprint maps).
Oh right...yeah good idea. I haven't been reading the details carefully enough, sorry. Looks good!
Gee thanks Graeme - pit me against my mum why don't you!
"Slippery bits you say"......now you tell me.....It obviously helps to read AP as well as the details before you start your run..http://www.attackpoint.org/log.jsp/user_3943
Going back a bit - what's your issue with white on sprint maps?
It did say slippery in the final details too, hope you recover soon Will.
White ... I think white should be the normal terrain, rather than something unique and distinctive, and certainly shouldn't be something best avoided. Also, I think urban maps are great for novices, and white is a bit counterintuitive.
I'm on the wrong side of history on this one.
