Finally I would like to say a big thanks to the marshals/helpers who generously give their time, to Walsh Sports for their continued support, Christine at the Bridge Inn for allowing us to use their facilities, Bolton Mountain Rescue whose help was required this year in evacuating a competitor with a suspected broken leg. And also to the landowners for their unconditional support. THANK YOU!!!!!
