Never has that little triangle of wood in Scolty been sooooooooooo noisy! The enthusiastic cheering was deafening at times especially when Daniel Stansfield and Jennifer Ricketts came storming down the final track to clinch first place for their teams West 1 and North 1G in the Open and Girls classes respectively!
Congratulations to the winners of course but also to everyone who took part and gave it their all, especially the many for whom it was their first taste of the buzz of relay racing.
Relay Points: North 68 East 36 West 64
(Individual Points and Overall Points will be published on the Maroc website.)
The basis for the scoring is, in each class, 24 for 1st, 20 for 2nd, 16 for 3rd, 12 for 4th, 8 for 5th and 4 for 6th – but only 2 teams from each of the 3 areas count. So, in the Open it was West 24,4; East 16,8; North 20,12. In the Girls it was North 24,12; West 20,16; East 8,4.
Here are the splits by course and team results after each leg and final results. (We invented a Star class of Orange/Yellow/Yellow so that three spare runners could still get a run and join in the fun.)
