We hope you enjoyed your runs at Wandlebury today. We were delighted to see so many of you, with nearly 100 finishers in the results. We can thank the excellent weather in the early part of the afternoon for such a good turnout, but the weather was not kind to us at the end of the afternoon. We thank you for bearing with us as the entry slips turned to paper mache whilst we were still trying to type in entry details at the end. If you spot any errors in the results please tell us (email publicity @ waoc.org.uk) and we will try to put it right.
We hope we will see you again at our next events. The next ParkO is at Impington Village College on 12th January, but there is a full-blown event at Rowney Warren on 25th November. This will feature courses similar to the three on offer at Wandlebury as well as a range of more technically difficult courses for the more experienced.
