KNCEast Grinstead KNCThu 17 February, 2022

Near: East Grinstead
Level of event: Local
Type of event: Race, Night, Score, Urban



Well the weather was certainly nicer than SO's last KNC at Tilgate in January. As some of you are aware Jane is under physio's orders of no running or substantial walking for a month or so. Fortunately most of this event could be planned by driving around and just popping out to check out a few footpaths. Only two competitors managed to get all 20 controls (and with very little time to spare) suggesting that the challenge was just about right. Thanks as ever to Joe for running download and getting the results up quickly, and to Chris and Darren for control collection.
