Ilkley Maprun Results   

I hope everyone enjoyed this first event in our Lockdown series and the first competitive use of the maprun app.

Many thanks to Tony Thornley for planning 3 very varied courses and particularly for getting to grips with Maprun in the terrain setting.

Great to see 74 runs over the week .

Very well done to Junior Emily Gibbins for winning the short course and to Quentin for doing a Long and Pick double.

If I have made any errors in the results please let me know and I will amend. Comments on the format and practical feedback on the app also welcome. We want to figure out its strengths and weakness to improve things as the series goes forward.
