There were many commendable aspects of Halstead’s organisation of the xc relays at Gosfield on Saturday – two examples being, an excellent ‘real’ xc course and a very good spectator-friendly finish area.... and of course the weather was perfect.
There were some obvious issues which the Endurance Committee and the Executive Committee are already reviewing in order that we can make suggestions, or provide solutions, to future race organisers.
Both Committees sincerely apologise to any team members who experienced a less than satisfactory event. Honestly, we really understand your frustrations. Putting on any event is a challenge and with a record entry this year, Halstead’s efforts to cope with this deserves our respect and thanks.
The results are here
