SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Street League 2018-19

The nights are rapidly drawing in so it is time, with 3 weeks to go, to get organised for the next SROC Street League season. Pencils need sharpening, torches need checking, reflective vests need finding and bodies, both muscles and minds, need fine tuning for the challenge to come.
This year in addition to the usual trophies and prizes on offer we have 2 new trophies. The John o'Gaunt trophy which will be based on a Lancaster event, with the inaugural event being on the 23rd January at Torrisholme. The second trophy will be in memory of Maurice Dean who sadly died recently and many of you will remember him as an enthusiastic member of the Street League 'scene'. It is proposed that this trophy be aimed at the 65+ section of competitors and based on the best 5 age related scores, a suitable name for this trophy yet to be agreed (suggestions welcomed, ideally not rude!).
The season 'kicks off' with Rowena's event in Lancaster West on 24th October we look forward to seeing many of you there. Details of all the other venues are available here.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) SROC AGM Thursday 11th October

Anyone keen to help the club develop may wish to put themselves forward for the committee; new members are always welcome!

The rescheduled Farleton Knott event went ahead today in lovely Spring sunshine; so different to the weather just a few weeks ago when it was snowed off. Results are available here, with additional analysis including RouteGadget, Winsplits Online and Splitsbrowser also available. A slight glitch affected about 20 runners, meaning they were not shown in the first version of the results as published. This has now been corrected everywhere. Another gremlin crept into the map during its geo-referencing which means that courses were actually longer than advertised. The correct lengths were White 1.5, Yellow 2.7, Orange 3.5, Light Green 4.0, Short Green 3.0, Green 4.4, Blue 6.7, Brown  8.8. These lengths are still comfortably within guidelines and some very fast times were recorded. We hope that no-one's enjoyment was affected.

Apologies for control site 21, it was not part of an advert suggesting you went to Specsavers, but was rather optimistic on my part - hope it didn't spoil anyone's run. We have also reinstated the 2 times which produced anomalies because dibbers were not cleared and checked!
I am very grateful to Miriam for agreeing to do the prize giving and to Karen N for ensuring that we have already a complete set of events for the next series. Just the summer to get through before we start again.
