League placings

Organsiser / planners comments - Rob Mckenna
I hope you all enjoyed your runs on this new area.
It has been a delight mapping and planning over the last few weeks on what for me is 'home' ground.
Hebburn Riverside, although not a highly technical area is good to run on and offers superb views on the river Tyne.
The challenge for most would probably have been running on virgin territory, which often makes you stop and think
even on the more obvious routes.
There was at least one error that I spotted on the map - the depression on the long course at number 3,
there was another depression of equal size fairly close to the one mapped. Unfortunately I didn't see it until I was
putting the controls out last night and the maps had already been printed. One other fault was in not informing you
of what a 'vent' was. I hope that this did not spoil your enjoyment of what turned out to be quite a pleasant evening.
Thanks for all turning up and supporting this event.
