Cow and Calf - Spring Sprint League

2nd event in a series of 6

Wed 04 May, 2022

Level of event: Local

Type of event: Race



Thank you for all coming, it was great turnout and brilliant to see all Cubs out enjoying an evening on t'moor.

Apologies for a couple of mis-placed controls on the Sprint course, I had to rush setting out the controls as my car was having a service. I hope you still had a enjoyable run out on the Burley moor side of the Cow n' Calf. Thanks to all who helped with kit, registration and collecting controls and made the event run smoothly on the day. See you next week at Calverley. Don't forget Jack Bloor fell race the day before too.
