News: October 2011
I had an email from Gavin Burt, an osteopath from London, who has devised a way to accurately diagnose injuries and give some professional advice as well as recovery plans. If you click on the image above you will be taken to the website where you will find a whole list of possible explanations for your own personal injury! Give it a go....it's pretty self-explanatory but if you need further help then click here for more info on how to use the site. It didn't explain my injury by the way!

Once the Sean’s were located we were set for the off. Mild panic at a few late arrivals was soon allayed and the teams were all in place. Great runs were had by all and all 3 teams coped with the difficult terrain, tussocks, bogs, rough tracks and came home in good order. The navigation leg was excellent and the controls well hidden necessitating careful and accurate navigation over hard terrain. Well done Quentin for taking on all the nav responsibility for our leg – makes my life a bit easier not having to think about that map reading business.
The race was won by Dark Peak 3.5 mins ahead of Borrowdale.
