Planner’s Comments

As many of you will have noticed, the stated climb was not the same as reality! Your legs are probably telling you that now. For some reason, the contour interval was stated as 5m when in reality they are at 10m interval. I must admit it felt like the climb was greater than I had calculated but I thought that was just me struggling up the hills! Apologies for misleading you all – but I hope you still enjoyed the courses in the wonderful Swanage town, parks and nature reserve. And the weather gods were on the side of Wessex OC, that’s for sure.
