Thank you to all who ran for the club

The SN Team, weakened by injuries and non-availability, finished a creditable 7th out of 11 finalists in Devon on 22nd October.

Virtuous Lady lived up to its reputation for steep and slippery slopes after the wind and rain of Storm Brian had prepared the ground for us overnight. Fortunately the weather remained fair on Sunday morning though tents had to be well pegged down in the breeze!

We probably finished roughly where we should have, given some of the key runners missing from the team this year. We could probably have been in the fight for 4th place with a full strength team but it would have been a big ask to get among the top three of BOK, FVO and SYO. It was an improvement on the 9th place we achieved in our previous final appearance in 2015.

Full results, with all the details of who scored what, are available from the Devon OC web site here.

Thank you to everyone who made the trip to the far side of Dartmoor, and survived the courses to contribute to the team score. It was a good day out, and with next year's final likely to be on more familiar-feeling terrain in the West Midlands, we will hopefully be back for another go in 2018.
