The annual Tri County (Powys v. Ceredigion v. Gwynedd) Primary Schools competition was held on Friday 19th June centred on the Bro Ddyfi Leisure Centre, Machynlleth. It was organised by Gwynedd on a Powys area - central location for all three counties. Many thanks to Y Plas, Bro Ddyfi Leisure Centre and Machynlleth FC for giving permissions.
The competition was for Year 3/4 competing on a White Course (0.9km in length) and Yr.5/6 on a Yellow Course (1.4km).
Terrain: A mixture of parkland and woodland area. Flat and fairly fast going; training shoes are suitable.
Map: updated in 2015. Scale is 1:2500, i.e 1cm on the map = 25m. Courses on pre-marked maps. Bi-lingual Control Descriptions will be on the front of the map.
Starts will be from 11.00am onwards, allowing time to travel for all three counties.
Safety: This area is open to the public, so do not talk to strangers and stay in your pairs.
Individual results: Will be accessible from this page as soon after the event as humanly possible. I have written in to the software that if a control is missed out then a 5 min Time Penalty will automatically be added. This means that no one goes away with "Disqualified" next to their name in the results (unless they forget to Clear before the Start, or forget to Dib at the Start and/or Finish or go around in the incorrect order!), i.e. a positive result occurs.
Team results: will be calculated on the fastest three pairs times added up, per County per course. There is a trophy for the Yellow Course winners.
