Many thanks everyone for joining us for the final event in this year's Night Terrain Series - it ended up being a beautiful evening, which did mean if you wanted to run in the dark you had to wait a little longer before you could start !

Thanks also to Iain for planning, Neil for safety, Jane as Series Co-ordinator and the SI Team of Ali, Mary and Mike.
