Summer Sprint 2

Local level event

What does this mean?

Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Training events are non competitive and used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships.

Terrain type: Urban





Series results after 2


What a difference from last week - a lovely sunny evening in Kendal tonight for the second of Iain's special sprint events! We hope you all enjoyed the courses and apologies from Iain for accidentally swapping controls number 223 and 228 around when putting them out.

Again many thanks to Iain for planning and organising tonight and also to the control collectors Loz & Jerry and the SI Team of Mike, Michael and Jerry. Back to Ulverston next week for the latest in Iain's specials !
