The weather today for the event was in direct contrast to yesterday when Mike Gardner (Controller) and I were putting the stakes and kites out. The skies opened up and stayed open long enough for us to get totally drenched.
Today was different. Team DVO are superb to work with, helpful, organised and knowledgeable. It is great to know that you are backed by such competence. Special mention to organiser Sal Chaffey and controller Mike Gardner who were never phased by the National Trust preferring us not to use the western side of the area – there is a new cycle way being built through the woods – and a special mention also to Bill Cove (NT Calke) for his support for the event.
The courses were planned three months ago and had to be re-planned at a very late stage to fit into the smaller area to the east of the wall. This necessitated some criss-crossing but hopefully kept you thinking and running hard. We hope the weather helped you all to have enjoyable and successful runs.
