According to our records (admittedly incomplete), with more than 50 people running, this was one of the best attended club champs so far this century. So well done to planner Brian Pearson for choosing such a popular venue and organising such good weather!
Based on actual score achieved any time penalties given.
Ben Chesters bagged all 33 controls, taking 62:18 and covering more than 10km! He achieved the maximum 780 points available less a time penalty at 15 points per minute taken over the alloted hour.
