A lovely forest and weather combined – what joy! Yesterday, at the Concorde Chase, at Star Posts North, we were treated to a lovely ‘clean’ forest with no muddy paths or squishy marshes for a change. A long walk to the Start meant we were nicely warmed up, and raring to go by the time we got there. There were several WSX members around and the best results were: Eskarina – 1st White; Lyra – 4th Light Green; Ian – 10th Short Blue and Peter – 10th Black.

Another success at the weekend was James Crickmore who came 1st at the Upton Country Park Park Run, in a PB of 19.13 minutes – beating the 2nd place runner by 4 seconds! Excellent.

Well done everyone!
