Organiser's Comments - David McCann, 0161 483 2061

Many thanks for all 77 who turned up for the first Saturday event in this format, the chasing start seemed to be popular and certainly had people running fast, at the same time navigating around the course accurately. We tried to make the second part a bit harder with some route choices to tempt you. Routegadget will be available to see where you gained/lost time in your personal head to head races. Apologies for one control that should have been on a pylon but was in fact on a very vague ruin. Control number 2 on the Orange course gave a few problems due to recent heavy rain, the stream is not normally that full.

We have learnt a few things from this race that will be improved next time so please come along again to Reddish Vale, which has more wooded area than Fletcher Moss
