Torchlight Christmas 5K Results!

On a night that could turn Santa to question his dedication to delivery duties and Rudolph to fake illness, an impressive 27 illuminated participants and a healthy band of much welcomed helpers converged in the starting area. Not deterred by the conditions, the hardie bunch sped off at 7pm prompt on the sound of a horn. From the off, Ben Johnson clearly meant business, storming around the undulating and twisting two loop route in a blistering 17:27 to significantly improve on his previous night time record, Carol James was first home for the ladies in an impressive 23:35. Much improved lighting on the bridge crossing was greeted with approval and certainly assisted in recovering fallers from the fast flowing brook. There will be a final winter tochlit tip run in mid January 2012 with the date to be announced soon. Will Ben's time remain intact till next winter or is someone out there prepared to make the trip and register a credible challenge. Many thanks to all participants and helpers who have attended to date. Wishing you all a great Xmas and a happy New Year. Andrew Hudson
