Event Report

Many thanks to all those of you who made it along to Lindow yesterday.  It was great to see so many new faces again as well as those of you becoming regulars.  We hope you all enjoyed it, despite the downpours and regardless of whether you are a newbie or an old hand!

Kudos to those at the top end of the results who covered a lot of ground!

Man & Woman of the match this time go to:-

First-timer Jamie Duncan just 16yo with a great 15k run on the 90 min course to win the battle of the Duncan family!

Also First-timer Holly Moxon with a good run despite initial tech issues and coming home 9mins early!

The next Spunches will be on Sunday morning 2 April (Danebridge - including 2 hour option) and Thursday evening 27 April (near Marple Bridge).  Both fantastic areas!  Hope to see some of you again there.

Thanks also for supporting Cecilia & David's Spunch Munch cake stall.  It raised a total of £136 which will go to the North West Juniors.  Coaching is available to juniors (and grown ups) - just ask!

Any feedback welcome.
