Thank you for all the comments after the event, I hope you are all now suitably re-hydrated and those that started early to watch another sport straight after finishing enjoyed that as well. First of all apologies for the position of control 56, the control description was correct but it was about 50m south of where it was shown on the map. Only one person told me 42 was also on the wrong side of the building, the map had already gone to the printers when I realised that the disused barn was occupied and they may not appreciate you lot making the box go beep.
I must thank the following: Simon Coiley for not only putting controls out on his way to the event but collecting the furthest ones after he had raced. The other control collectors, Steve and Andrea Foster, Jill Ellison, Graham Tibbot and Ray Morris. Geoff Moorhouse for manning the download and registration , Alastair Copeland for sorting out parking and Edwyn Oliver-Evans for doing the starts so well whilst I put out the last controls. Also to Debby at OGUG for sourcing the room and booking it for us although leaving me next to a bakery for 6 hours is never going to end well.
I was glad you all seemed to enjoy the route choice, after last year I decided we should try and avoid the 3 peaks walk route as much as possible so I took out the track NE of Horton for that reason, even then I heard some stories of groups of walkers blocking roads. I also wanted to add some tracks to the area south of the A65 as I don’t think we use it enough and the underpass in Clapham was a welcome find, I also understand some found it a welcome cooling down spot and sat in the river.
Congratulations to Graham Tibbot for his score of 503 and I was pleased he didn’t clear up but thought he might. Well done to the other class leaders, Ben and Stephen Collins in Generation, Mark Chryssanthou in M40, Mark Rowley in M50, Chris Swift in M60, Roger De Faye in M70. In the Ladies classes Sheila Pearce was first overall and in W40, Jill Ellison won W50, Clare De Faye won W60, Karen Blackburn won W70 and Andrea and Steve Foster won the X50.
The next event is the Malham Show event on the 25th August that Simon Coiley is planning.
The event results are here, the control map is here, and the updated league is here.

An all in one update: the event results are here; the league after 3 events is here and the planners comments and control map are below:
Cleveland Hills Planners Comments – Jill and Conrad Ellison
A big thank you for everyone who supported us yesterday – Steve W, John D and the gallant tribe of control collectors – Richard and James M, Christine and Ralph D, Ray M, John R, Simon C, Carl V and Neil R. And to Tim E for putting the map together.
The tracks were bone dry and the early rain on Saturday morning only served to dampen down the dust. The tracks were the driest Jill and I have seen for 20 years. The track through Easby to the west of Captain Cooks, normally a swamp, was totally dry.
Thank you for all of your positive comments. Plenty of smiles at the finish or was it grimacing after the Little Kildale/Baysdale loop ?
Well done to the category winners – particularly to Dave L, first timer to NYMBO, on a great score and 4100ft of climb (proper hills !) and to Angela B-B for a storming score.
Thankfully we were all done and dusted and controls collected before the heavens opened.
See you all at Ingleton, hopefully (for pre- and post- cake and tea).
Jill and Conrad Ellison
Thanks to Conrad and Jill for planning an excellent course, and arranging for the weather to stay mostly dry. Results are here
