Thanks to Richard Cronin we eventually managed to sort out the problem with the start times.

I will also try and sort out the splits but it may take a while.

Wenallt Local Event 23/20/21

60 competitors took part in our SWOC league event on Saturday 23rd October, and it was great to see some new faces as well as many familiar faces.

Blessed with dry weather and a pleasant temperature for running everyone could enjoy the glorious mature beech forest, although the fall of autumn leaves had covered many of the footpaths !

Thanks to Ben for creating the map, Annemieke for planning and setting out some challenging courses, to Graham Tough for doing the timing, Nick Dallimore and Adrian Moir for their results and entries support and Mark, Alice and Charles for collecting controls.

We hope to see you all again at Gwaelod-Y-Garth, near Taff’s Well, in November.

Nick
