Bingley Results  

Lots of Fabulous Junior runs once again on Short course Congratulations to Rebecca and Martin -Well done all.

Steve just sneaked the long overall with Joyce leading the Women.

We had a couple of issues this weeks. A number of competitors missed 12 as it was on almost a straight line

from 11 -13. Map print out quality and lack of white border to numbers exasparated this on the software used

this week - Apologies.

Controls 7 & 13 on long a lot of people didn't register but obviously went past all have been reinstated
