For the third leg of our Summer League, we held a 2-phase one-day event in the townland of Toughraheen about 8km east of Bantry town on Sunday 26th August 2018.
Everyone rode the event as Level 2 pairs. Riders who had little or no experience in the POR (orienteering) phase were paired with those more experienced, and the POR route itself took the riders between 2 and 2.5 hours to complete. The afternoon saw all the riders manoeuvre through the PTV (obstacle) course.
Overall results for the event were as follows:
1st: Flora (Sandra Schmid) and Flower Power (Marlina Posthuma Quirke)
2nd: Ballyphillip Gold (Frances Whooley) and Silverspring Sia (Mary Creedon)
3rd: Birdhills SC II (Ellie Horgan) and Guinness (Kate Sheehan)
4th: Grace (Shirley Squire) and Shelly (Norma Steele)
5th: Stella (Julie O'Neill) and Angel (Katie Con O'Sullivan)
6th: Paris II (Siobhán Wolf) and Faerietale Dreams (Karen Vicencio)
7th: Gladys (Jane Capener) and Mikaela (Bridget Sheeran)

West Cork TREC would like to thank everyone who helped setup the course on Saturday, which was no easy feat as the obstacles had to be carried up the steep hill on foot. We thank the competitors, judges, and stewards for travelling to our event on the Sunday. We would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the land owners for allowing us to map the orienteering route up farm laneways and across fields and forestry tracks, the competition was greatly enhanced by the amount of off-road riding we were able to use in the POR route.
