The Routegadget for Lilleshall Hall sprints has been added to the Routegadget pages
I have added a new profiles page to the site and to get us into the confessionary mood is my Interview with Duncan Birtwistle. Duncan is having a great spring, with Wrekin fell race win and a superb JK (with some help from Clive and Craig in the relay!) and we wish him well for the British Champs.
Rod Postlethwaite has just been awarded the Chichester Trophy for his map of Keele University, which was used for last year’s British Sprint Championship. The Chichester Trophy is the highest BOF award for mapping and this is the fourth time that Rod has won it.
Congratulations to Duncan Birtwistle on being selected to represent Great Britain at the forthcoming World Cup. Clearly the move to Shropshire been an inspiration. Duncan also ran brilliantly in the JK and I'm hoping to get a full report from him soon.
