SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Helmshore results

Congratulations to Steve on such a rapid producing of the results - They were with me in the early hours of Thursday - unfortunately (or fortunately from my point of view) I was asleep so they only went on the web at 8.00 - sorry about that Steve. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make the event which was pleasingly dry again, will this last until the end of the series - I sincerely hope so. I understand that Matt Driver's love of 'Street Leaguing' was tested last night - hopefully he will be fully recovered by Adlington. See you there - Bob

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Eccleston results

Results are here. League coordinator's comments: It was pleasing that for the the early starters at least we had another dry run (hope the rain didn't spoil it for the later runners), quite unexpected after the rain during the day - the weather men got it right. However the rain did ensure that the event was certainly muddy - if mud is good for the complexion then after Wednesday many of us must have the most beautiful feet and legs around. Shame about SPOTY but I did find the post box although doing that did make me late. Never mind I did have agood time and enjoyed the pub food and the 'after run' chats. We have some lost property so if anybody wants to lay claim to a pencil with string loop attached, a black buff or a head torch then I have them. Bob Nash

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Ramsbottom Street O

The much awaited Ramsbottom event was eventually able to take place. The map was excellent but not sure about the hills! A pleasing number of competitors were able to make what is our most southerly event and a good time was had by all. Many thanks to Pete, Matt and all their helpers for putting the event on and finding such a pleasant hostelry for the post run chats. Bob Nash. For results, click here, RouteGadget here.
