Race Organiser's Comments

Let's start with the good news.

Not a bad turnout considering the number of races at this time of year.

It’s a good course and everyone seemed to enjoy the route. The weather, whilst not good, could have been a lot worse. Ian Mulvey, David Armstromg, Jeff Ross and David Mason had a close race although Dexter says he could not catch Ian and David Mason, who had been lying second, turned his ankle on the final run down The Street.

Karen Robertson and Bev Blakeman came in together in 7th place, only nine and a half minutes behind the leading man, to tie in the ladies race. It was Bev’s first fell race. Congratulations to Pam Armstrong who also completed her first fell race.

Sorry about the route marking. Minimalist was an optimistic turn of phrase. Jimmy Tomlin’s car overheated on the way up the Uswayford track. He was pushed for time to get to the summit of Windy Gyle and that’s why some people found no marshal to greet them on their arrival at the summit cairn.

It is tricky to find the summit and I will give some more thought as to how to best mark next year's race.

Thanks to Tony and Helen who did registration and finish, to Jeff and Sam for the results and to Ray, Jimmy and Brian for marshalling.
