Baildon Results  

Once again great to see a good turnout including a quite a few newcomers.

Congrats to Jonathan Binney taking the Short and to Junior Tom Threllfall on winning the medium.

On the Long David Alcock just pipped Quentin and Cerys Jones (4th overall) leading Womens performance despite suffering the weeks only reported technical hitch.

For a terrain event the Maprun seemed to work very well with only a couple of corrections necessary.

Thanks for the hard work put in on the event by planner Pete Jones and Tony Thornley assisting with the georeferencing
