Any route back.
There will be 3 starts at 9-20/9-40 and 10. expected winning time of 75 minutes.good to have everyone back by 11-45 !?.Andy
P.S. Tim Hawley has previously been considered the cut off for slow people, so if you can't beat Tim, go in the early start.
* As some of us (yes, the webmaster is definitely in this group) might feel that the length of the course is excessive, there is an official short alternative, which visits 1, 2 & 3 then goes across the top to the trig thereby missing out Grindsbrook and the pine trees.
