Hallin Fell event – 9th April results

If you came to Hallin Fell we hope you enjoyed your run out over this lovely Wainwright. We apologise to early starters on Green and Short Green who found, or didn’t find, control 111 in the wrong place. Whilst this was corrected fairly quickly, to be fair to those early starters we have amended the results to exclude this control and the times either side of it. Results are now available here, as is Routegadget and WinSplits.
