28/8/18 - Mike Forrest, one of the planners, says: "So, the news fresh from the British Sprint Championships coalface is that the map and courses have gone off to the printers, ready for your competition on Saturday. I am really excited about the courses we have been able to put together for you. Chris Johnson’s map is excellent (aided by our mapping adviser, Tony Thornley), and gives a very clear view of the terrain you will face, and in particular makes the split-level nature of the main campus building very easy to follow. Most of you will get a taste of that in the heats, with more interesting decisions to make in the finals. All we need now is some decent weather to go with what should be an excellent competition."
