Successful Sheffield City Race

Sunday, 05 September 2010 01:00

Competitors enjoyed Rob and Clare's exciting courses in the sunshine at The Ponderosa in Sheffield yesterday.  The senior courses in the prologue had a control every 50m on average, making for extreme difficulty in keeping one's brain ahead of one's legs.  Both courses featured twisty gennels (alleys in south-speak), unexpected dead-ends and complex route choices.

In the open classes, Richard Robinson overcame a 10 second (but four-place) deficit after the first race to win the Men's, while there was a close finish in the Women's when Mairead Rocke's 12 second lead on the second race was enough to overtake Jenny Johnson's 7-second advantage after the first.

Results links are higher up this page.

New website goes live

Wednesday, 15 September 2010 09:19

SYO has a new website.  It was agreed at committee that we would upgrade the website to make it even more useful for members, and easier for members to contribute to.  So, we have set up this website that uses a Content Management System (CMS) called Joomla, and are in the process of transferring the old articles, results, etc onto the new site. The old site will remain available for a limited period here.

Please be patient while the new site gets "up and running".  We would certainly appreciate your feedback, and any suggestions you may have, if you have anything to say,  leave a comment on this article or contact Martin Ward or Adam Bradbury from the "Contact" menu.
