Many thanks for all turning up to support this event on what turned out to be a glorious evening.
Chopwell can be a tough area to run in, but I tried to keep you in the better parts of the wood.
Times on all three courses look a bit longer than I had anticipated - the long course was probably predictable,
with the long haul up from the bottom of the wood.  The short and medium course times are a bit harder
to fathom, as on paper, they looked fairly easy. There was route choice and maybe some competitors chose the
rougher part of the wood. In Chopwell, unless you know the area, it is always best to choose to stick with
the paths - it may be slightly longer, but generally will be faster. One other point was that the laminated
control signs were hard to spot. Again I thought that I had positioned these so that you would see them as
you approached the control (assuming that you came in the direction I had anticipated).
