We were lucky again for conditions for the races. The number of runners in the Senior Race was a little down on last year but made up for by the youngsters. 305 runners in all. Chris Smithard of Deeside Orienteers was the first man home with a time of 38.40  and Jo Waites the first Lady with a time of 46.40. Our own Member Brian was happy with his time. Full details can be obtained by putting Jack Bloor Races into Google.

My thanks go to all who gave their time so willingly and thanks were expressed to the Gritstone Club by the Race Organiser Rob King. I was asked to present a Trophy but, as it hadn’t been returned by the previous winner, I was fortunately spared.
