SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Hyning Scout Wood results

A small wood but with plenty of technicality! Results for the event are available here. Please note that the few runners who started on Long Technical but then changed over to Short Technical have been credited with the final control which wasn't on their part 1 map. They all had to pass it on the way to the finish anyway.

The eagerly awaited 2011-2012 Night Street League kicks off on Wednesday 19th October at a new venue in Bolton-le Sands, using a newly combined Bolton-le-Sands and Carnforth map. The usual league format will be followed for this and the other nine events in the league. This season there will be an extra 11th event, separate from the league, after which the prizegiving will be held. Proving that they can run by day as well as by night, Street League regulars John Britton (MDOC) and Glenys Ferguson (SROC) are pictured collecting their prizes for winning the Men's and Women's Ultravet classes at last Saturday's London City Race. More street event information via the fixture list or by following the picture link on the left of this page.
