SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Kirkham street-O results

The Kirkham results are now on the web. Many thanks to all those who made it to this event, we had over 50 runners which is very pleasing for the event and the Prize Giving. My impression is that a good time was had by all and it was particularly pleasing to welcome runners from Thornton and Lytham. The results are in three groups. The raw results in black; results using the one off Event Multiplier in blue; results using the Age Multiplier in red. The official result is that Dawn Lock is the winner of the Kirkham event so heartiest congratulations to one of the stalwarts of our Street Leaguing. Once again thank you to all of you have supported the series. We already have several who have volunteered for 2013-14 but still need more if we care to have a complete series so please if you are able to do an event then let me know. - Bob

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Street League event 10, Adlington, 13th March

The Adlington event brought to a close another successful Street League season. It was very enjoyable to run on a new area especially on a cold clear night. Many thanks to all those who turned out to enjoy the events and the socialising afterwards. I am especially grateful to the Planners and Organisers without whom there would be no series. However as one series ends thoughts turn to the next one so anyone who is willing run an event in the 2013/14 season please let me know. Now onto the final event, the culmination of our efforts, the prizegiving at Kirkham - See you all there - Bob. Follow these links for results and RouteGadget.

The latest league tables are now on the web. (Gross and Age adjusted). Please check to make sure I have done the discards correctly. There is still competition in a number of classes.

Still much to play for at Adlington, not to mention the various challenges happening lower down the tables. PS Don't forget to order your food for Adlington. See you there - Bob
