When filling an entry form for a race can you make sure your name is written very clearly in exactly the same way for every race (e.g. always Andy and not sometimes Andrew). Mistakes hard to correct afterwards as the results information is published in many places (often within hours of the race finishing).

LONGMYND HIKE 50th:
High Sports are really proud to be staging this exclusive lecture of Pete’s historic and stunning solo ascent of El Cap. We hope you can come along, if not we’d appreciate it if you could spread the word, all profits go to charity. Don’t miss this chance to meet the lad who put UK climbers firmly back in the Yosemite climbing history book.

Thanks to all competitors and helpers for another successful Mercia Hill Trial. Everyone came back within the time limit, although a few had issues finding one or two of the controls. I hope you all had fun and managed to practise your navigation skills on a fair but challenging course.
