Spring Series Results & Final Table

Results for the sixth and final event of the Spring series can be found here.

On the Short course, Eila and Maija Brook went head to head with Eila pulling out a marginal victory. On the Long course, Wayne Bynre claimed the victory ahead of Ben Cluderay and Jane Deville. On the technical course, the race was very closely contested with Paul Murgatroyd proving to have the best memory and taking the win, just 14 seconds ahead of Liam Harrington. Rich Crabb came home third, a minute down on Paul.

The final Spring series table is now available and can be found here. On the Short course, Jonny Ogden took home the win ahead of Owen and Victoria Evans. On the Long course, Ben Cluderay took home the top prize ahead of Simon Carruthers. Ally Wright came through as third overall and the top female. Finally, on the Technical course, despite his win on the night, Paul Murgatroyd could only tie with Rich Crabb, with Rich ending up second and Paul third on countback. That left Liam Harrington to take the series victory.

A big thanks to all of the helpers who collected controls, the organiser Sean Harrington and computer wizard Andy Lucas. And finally the 6 planners for the series, Kev Rice, Charlie Ellis, Jeff Baker, Paul Murgatroyd, Craig Lucas and Geoff Gibbs

Fight the Night Series 2023

Weds 22nd Feb saw the grand finale of this season’s FtN, with 27 runners taking to the streets of East & Central Lincoln. Again, as with last week, 4 runners ended the night all tied on 190 points, but the countback on time taken saw Paul Murgatroyd take his third victory of the series, with Liam Harrington and Mike Chapman in second and third places respectively.

The Cup final for the top 3 prizes saw Paul narrowly claim top prize, only 2 points ahead of Anne Gibbs, with Mark Baddeley taking a well deserved bronze. In other news, Mike Chapman scored a victory in the Trophy Final, Ade Chapman narrowly beat his wife for the Plate award and Marcus Lancastle, in his only run of the series, comfortably claimed the Vase prize.

All the results from the night can be seen here, with the handicap results here and the overall series table here.

Our thanks to Andy Lucas for running the IT at each event, to all the planners for their hard work, to Keith Iley for helping to fund the Lincs Runner prizes and to all the pubs for hosting the race nights. We move onto the Spring Series next and entries are now open on SiEntries, with all the details on the respective event pages.
