Last night saw a few hardy souls taking part in the second of this year’s YHOA Night League events. The weather varied between mildly unpleasant and horrible, which resulted in a somewhat reduced turnout, but those who came mostly seemed to enjoy it.
The results are now up. Well done to all concerned, especially Tim Evans, the planner, who got the worst of the weather whilst setting out.
As usual, CLARO’s experienced helper teams combined to flatter their Organiser’s abilities and we had the very welcome use of Killinghall Moor’s Sports Pavilion and its warmth and light as a refuge from a very wet and windy evening. Despite that weather, we welcomed 35 runners comprising not just the hard core, but also some young people – including one in a baby carrier. I was impressed. This is what the sport is about. Tim Evans’ inventive new courses proved challenging and entertaining – even for those CLARO hands who know the area well. Very well done also to Vince Grealy whose first event as Controller this was.
Only one item of lost property: a single long sock, dark with multi-coloured bands. Contact me to claim it.
