The biggest crowd of the season thus far braved the wind and the challenging 3.2km hill circuit at Woodruffes Farm, a farm we have had the privilege of running on since 1954.
We had a new timing system today, so thanks to Jacinda Duker and Hayley Cornwall for their quick learnings to help us record results. A few gremlins and raindrops but by and large a successful test! (Revised Results uploaded 23/4/18 after ironing out a few bugs) At afternoon tea we announced the “fastest times”. Results have now been fully processed and attached now in Handicap finish order
