I have been trying to think of some options, and I reckon a knife fight to the death is probably the only fair option.

Failing that, some way of looking at which of the two of them has won most often in head to head competition.....

They can have their tie break at the final Aztec 5km race next Tuesday ;)

I see Owain made a humungous cock up at no 17 - typical - I was waiting for him to do something like that at Dursley, so I could catch him up, but he didn't...... never mind.

He probably went to the right place, so not a mistake by him .... (read Mark3's log) - although I wasn't there so no idea if this was one of those controls referred to.... I see he had now joined BOK

No, he did cock up, we chatted about it at the finish. He went in one alley too early. Said the vicar to the nun....

none of the control placings were THAT bad, they were just one lamppost off usually, or the lampost/tree wasn't quite where the circle was on the map, so basically if there were cars blocking your view from your approach direction (like number 11) and you ran to the lamppost where the map showed the control would be and found nothing, you then had to turn around for a second and back track... nothing too drastic for a relaxed evening series event, but enough to lose a bit of time on each one.

To be fair to Tom, if you are going to put the tie break on a 5k race, maybe you should start it with a Trail-O problem and say you can start running once you have solved it....
