Thank you to all those who competed and helped at today's event. I hope you enjoyed your day out in the New Forest! A good turnout, dry weather and the addition of theInter-Servicess Championships made for a worthwhile and successful event. Mention should go to controller Chris Huthwaite for his assistance and planner Simon Bevan for his excellent courses. The computing team is the unsung side to an event and I am grateful to Jerry Newcombe for his input on and prior to the day.
An unseasonably dry Forest coupled with competition from runners in the Inter-Services Championships gave rise to some fast times. Whatever course you were on I hope you found them challenging over typical New Forest woodland and heath.
