Sunday presented a few challenges: lunchtime drizzle=mud; route to the far start long and complex.
But not as long and complex as the courses.
AIRE runners who overcame all this were led by club sec David Alcock (1st Brown) and Jack Cooper (2nd Blue).
Over 30 AIRE helpers made the event possible - many thanks to all of you.
There was a good turnout of Airienteers in the Lake District for the British Night and Northern Champs last weekend. Congratulations to Laura King for becoming the W18 Night Champion and to Lucy Haines, whose third place in W18 gave her the Northern Championship crown. A number of Airienteers had top five placings.
