Third time lucky for trying to stage this event but maybe worth the wait to have sunshine! Happily nobody was crushed by an enthusiastic mountain biker; it was originally a night event and few other users of the wood were expected.
Thanks to everyone who ran, we hope you enjoyed it.
Congratulations to winner Quentin Harding who collected all 26 controls just 18seconds faster than Alice Leake. Al Powell Chris MacKenzie and Steve Webb also cleared up.
Well done also to Leading Juniors Jake Powell and Emily Gibbins.
