Event Report

Please check your results carefully for spelling/club/age group/correct timing and score, and let us know asap of any errors. If your score is not what you were expecting, and you don't feature in the wrong-answers list, one of us has made a mistake.

Don't forget that if you can't make a particular event, you can get the map and questions from Grahame , and run by yourself before or after the day, and have your score included.

After some investigations, the Provisional results stand unchanged apart from one addition we got wrong. 

The very popular wrong answer (1) for #69 was for a different TP which stands outside the circle and to the South of the correct answer,  i.e.  before the crescent-shaped extra path and the big bend, so we are happy there was enough detail on the map for it to be a fair control site. 

Here's a map sample of the area around control 69, along with a supporting photograph which shows the correct TP and in the distance someone pushing against the incorrect TP.

Additional information from the organiser

The pub (Hyde's) is just past Sainsbury's as you head south from Wilmslow town centre towards Alderley Edge.

From Wilmslow Station, it's a 900m walk.


The pub has a small car park but this has to accommodate all the pub patrons and those staying at the adjacent WIlmslow Lodge hotel, so we would ask you please to park in the vast adjacent Sainsbury's car park where it is free to park after 18:00. 


Wilmslow prices, but reduced by the generous January Bounce'  which we understand will be 50% discount applied to the pub's standard menu. We will provide a link to the January menu when it becomes available.

Reserving a map and food

As usual, we need to get an estimate of the number of maps required ... so if you are interested in attending please email Grahame Crawshaw  by 6pm on Friday 29th December, indicating the number of maps required.​

Please note that maps will be printed on the 30th December - so best not be late with your entry!

In order to give the pub a chance to cope with us all, please indicate whether you are likely to eat there - no order required until after you have run, then please expect a 15-20 minute wait until your food is served.
