Holt Park Results  

Congratulations to Quentin Harding and Andrew Stemp on their winning runs and to Charlotte Ward (4th Overall) and Rebecca Gray (2nd) the leading Women.

Well done to Juniors Emily Gibbins and TomThrelfall placing very highly in 3rd and 4th on the Short.

Reviewing the tracks this week has been interesting. A lot of variation not all due to weather conditions.

I have reinstated a few people who I think patently did the course and didn't run through copious numbers of gardens and short cut through houses!

We also had a couple of timing issues which I have tried to deal with fairly. I believe poor track reading combined with lost signal passing under a building and finishing under tree canopy before the signal could be reacquired contributed.

Noted for future maprun planning.

If you had a relatively poor track please look at this advice Maprun poor GPS advice
