By very popular demand (Messrs Harmer and Westgate seem especially keen, but I know Rob C and Lewis will take particular delight also), I offer the first in an occasional series of "spot the control points" race tracks.

Tim T's birthday race started and finished from the Sportsman (my watch was eight minutes late kicking in), and featured six control points, with a short option to visit just four.  I eventually visited four, with a very half-hearted attempt to visit a fifth.

A pint of Landlord to the best guess/description as to what these five control points might have been (without reference to anyone present on the night, please).

And for those who were present, an alternative game: a pint of Blonde to the best prose reconstruction of my thought processes as I ambled around the route last night ...

There is a map of this run, view the post to see it

The one thing I will say in my defence is that the attention to detail demonstrated in avoiding any form of trespass over the western end of the route is, I'd suggest, truly laudable.

The woodland control point obviously a tricky one, was it the Fairy Kingdom? Robin Hood and his Merry Men? The Teddy bear's picnic?
