Sadly I won’t be able to enter this, because that area looks like it’ll make a great course. I notice the canal towpath is neither marked as in bounds or out-of-bounds – that’s a sufficiently grey area I’d expect to have that ruled on. Though obviously it depends if you put any controls there 🙂
It is a grey area so there are no controls on the towpath. All of the controls are out now and it really is a cracking area.
We have got 20 entries for the MBO Sprint event at Swinsty so Tim has printed 25 maps. We have got 80 entries for the MBO Score event at Gargrave so Jens has printed 90 maps.
There are only 30 parking spaces at Gargrave village hall so, when they are full, please park in the free public car parks on West Street or North Street which are both within 50m of the village hall. Refreshments will be on sale before and after the event in the hall – and we still need a couple of volunteers to help collect controls afterwards. Any offers??
Great event yesterday, thanks. Not sure who and where best to contact, but on-line entry for the Ingleton event doesn’t seem to be working – it says the closing date was in 2014! Perhaps somehow copied over from last year.
James – well spotted thank you – now fixed, and open for business. Glad you enjoyed it!
Just want to thank Graham for a very challenging course, haven’t done a 5 hour in ages so glad to survive. Pre-planning using the blank map saved the day “Maximise road, Minimise climbing” Well it works for me! Congrats to Ray & Dennis in M60 for wiping the floor with the rest of us old gimmers. When is drug testing going to be introduced??
