Natasha Finishing At Cringle Moor

Compass Sport Cup Round, Cringle Moor

Mon 13 Mar

On Sunday we were 2nd in our heat, just pipped by CLOK. At the end of the day it came down to a difference of only 23 points out of over 2400. I think sheer weight of numbers for CLOK on their home territory counted for a lot but we also had 3 or 4 mispunches that might have closed that gap. A big thanks to all of you who represented the club. If you didn't manage to give me the entry fee on the day can you please transfer it direct to the club bank account (£10).

Ilkley Moor: long legs and mud

Mon 6 Mar

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.
