Compass Sport Trophy

The Compass Sport Trophy took place at Bentley Woods on Sunday, 33 of us made the trip to attempt to reach the final. It was cold and windy first thing but at least it was bright and a good temperature for running once you got going.

This year we had even more competition as HOC have become a small club. We were also up against WCH, WRE, COBOC, SMOC and SUFFOC.

We had some excellent performances, with 3 course winners and a 2nd place. Everybody played their part in helping us achieve a satisfying result, considering the winners HOC had 23 more runners than us!

Here are the 13 POTOC scorers giving us a 1249 Total and 3rd place in the Trophy Competition.
