With the Burns Clan and the Hubert Gang away I was unsure how many people we would have for todays relay, I had an email telling me the Gardiners were coming so at least there would be one team.
The mild weather and lack of rain was a good start as Helen and I walked the course and put out the markers and as we got back to the Ranger Centre an enthusiastic Jenna arrived. The Gardiners followed then the Burnetts and the Joneses. so we had four teams and no difficult sorting out, Hooray. Unaccompanied adults Alan Hogg and Helen Wise were added to prop up the long legs of the McGowan and Jones teams and we were off.
James Burnett showed the benefit of Christmas Mudclaws to come back in first with Angus Gardiner 3 minutes behind, Jenna was 3rd and the Joneses brought up the rear.
Charlie Burnett was the first middle leg runner back closely followed by Ritchie Gardiner.
The long leg runners followed the same order with Neil ahead of Douglas.
With Burnetts all 1st and Gardiners all 2nd there was not any adding up required to sort out the winners
Well done to all the juniors and it is great to see the Middle leg being run by Juniors too, Well done Charlie, Ritchie and Ronnie.
Thanks to Nick MacDonald for being the race Marshal and pointing the juniors in the right direction.
