Comments from the organiser, Sue Stevens, for Malham Moor

I would like to thank everyone who helped in planning the event in advance and running it on the day, and particular thanks to those who spent a lot of time and effort putting out the many stiles, without which we could not have put on the event.  I would also like to thank the competitors for supporting the event, and the weather for being so good.

Apologies for the toilet queues. We had seriously underestimated the number of toilets to order as we were working on an anticipated entry of 300+ and instead had 500+.
