Unfortunately control 55 was vandalised just before the first runner got there, and not replaced later. Hence everyone that did not get a punch at 55 has been left in the results, and you will not have a correct split time for the leg before and after that control.
The assembly provided an ideal area on the lawns at the east side of the Cemetery. It offered a large, sheltered space with good opportunities to socialise, picnic or play games; which all added to the atmosphere. There were around 270 runs, with many positive comments on the variety and challenges. In particular the planner was complimented on the tricky route choices in and around the Cemetery, causing much thinking and confusion. Thank you to everyone for finishing promptly so we could pack up before the heavy rain arrived!
