Re: English Schools
Thank you guys, I can only say a grateful thanks to the front line troops of marshalls, school staff, who did such a selfless & professional job, Richard Lecky-Thompson, for managing the esfrc website & entry procedure, Jim Godwin (aka Felljunior) for doing a great job sorting the results so quickly (despite significant data discrepancies), Jon Broxop & Pete Blands for support with prizes & hard work. Most of all Martin and the staff at Cockermouth School for putting on an excellent day despite very challenging conditions.
And all the runners deserve high praise, I thought they all showed great character, great humour & attitude, all of them were winners & I hope they have great memories of the day.
After two excellent years at Cockermouth, the ESFRC will move to another school next year. Negotiations are ongoing with 2 schools, one in Cumbria, one in Yorkshire, although expressions of interest or recommendations are always welcome.
The bar has been set high by both Sedbergh and Cockermouth, but I'm very confident the competition will continue to grow and evolve, it's a great event.
