The weather turned wild and wet about 3pm, and it was raining as we left Aberdeen to drive up the valley. The rain held off for a little while about 6pm but returned an hour or so later, so we all got rather damp…
But Glen Dye is such a cracking area and wonderful to run in at night – as there is very little green veg to get in the way, and hardly any windblow in the part of the area we used.
Control 173 (no 6 on Long) was slightly misplaced into another depression 30m NE. On reflection, we’ve decided to void leg 5-6 on the Long for DNC points calculation, so revised results are here:
A couple of runners on the short mispunched 173 for their control (174). The two controls were about 40m apart instead of 70m as intended. We’re feeling generous and have reinstated the people affected. But no precedent is being set by this! Please consider yourself reminded that it is very definitely the competitor’s responsibility to check the control code.
Time for a hot bath and mebbe a wee dram to warm the extremities.
