51 Chasers competed in a fantastic weekend in the Lake District at JK 2015. After a Sprint around Lancaster University, we were treated to 2 tough days in the complex Lakes terrain, finished off by a relay in lovely Graythwaite. While there were some epic times, it was a great challenge, helped on the terrain days by excellent weather. Cath organised accommodation at Coniston Youth Hostel which was much appreciated.
Top 5 performances came from a select few: 1st place for Stodge on M40S, 3rd for Amy on W14B and Cath on W40S, 4th for Norman on M80 and Charlotte on W14B, and 5th for Claire on W35S and Beth on W50L.
We can do it all again in a fortnight at the British Champs! To keep your eye in, there’s a WRE Sprint event next Saturday, followed by a HOC Colour Coded on Kinver Edge on Sunday.

Well done Sally for organising her first event and coping with the problems the weather and equipment threw at her with a smile, Ian for planning some fun courses on a fun little area, Andy Hemsted for controlling and all the helpers for helping, especially Tom for running download for the first time despite the generator issues (sorry you all had to walk to the ticket office to download) and the car park team for getting the cars in and out of the field.
I’m told the sun was shining in the forest!!

What a great event at Bentley Wood today. Good courses, no brambles or other impediments to running and lovely sunshine. Alas, my hired EMIT failed to download so I have no idea how long I took. They hoped to rescue my times later but no results so far.

The best must be on M14 where Henry Webb WON the course but was followed in 2nd place by Joe Holland, in 3rd place by Adam Mardling and in 4th place by Alfie Spencer. Well done lads. Not to be outdone Holly Craig took an excellent 4th place on the W14, Holly Stodgell came 7th and Charlotte Cairns-Smith followed in 9th. Well done girls.
On the Junior Women Heather Craig came 9th and Holly Hughes came 11th while on the Junior Men our only runner, Matt Hartland came 3rd.
