Photographs

Pippa Cumbers was unable to run but came to the event anyway and took some fabulous photographs. I've loaded all of these to Facebook, even the one showing a rose stuck up my nose. Let me know if you require any of the photographs to be taken down. See posts in BA Runner Facebook Page

Results

We used webscorer for the results processing and the original output is available on their website: https://www.webscorer.com/race?raceid=319048. The only change to the results published below is that I insisted that Julie reinstated herself and walked round with the tail walker to ensure that the host club got a mention in the team results. This photograph from Janet Smith perhaps conveys that...though was actually me pointing out where the water was.

Team Competition

The first three finishers from each club are recorded as that club's "A" team, the next three as the "B" team and so on. Results were determined for complete teams on minimum combined time. As it happens on this occasion the minimum combined places matches the minimum combined times.
