Organiser's Report:

Thank you all for coming along to todays bright and sunny, if slightly cold, event. Firstly, an excess of thanks is due to the planner Iain Stemp who stepped into the breach and only had around 8 weeks to plan today's courses. Both myself and the controller are extremely grateful to Iain for all his hard work and effort at such short notice to create great courses that were widely enjoyed. As always thanks to all the helpers from WAOC and CUOC without whom the event wouldn't run. I hope you all enjoyed your runs today and I look forward to seeing you lots of you at the next WAOC event, the Royston city race on March 10th.
