The Beds (and Bucks) County Championships were held at Stockwood Park, Luton on Saturday 4th January 2014.
The Results are here
The conditions were mild but very wet with a lot of standing water. Although muddy in places it wasn't as bad as some courses.
Thanks to all the officials and marshalls who stood out in the rain all afternoon.
A few races suffered some issues with the route taken by the runners.
In the U20 men's race the marshall's (correct) instructions were contradicted by a coach and as a result the runners took the wrong turn. However the quick thinking marshall ensured everybody took the same route
and therefore, although not the planned route, it was consistent and the Referee allowed the result to stand.
The Veteran 60 men's race also suffered some issues with the final turn being the primary one. A number of runners took different courses and with a lack of any consistency, the Referee was forced to declare this race void.
The results reflect one revision in the U13 boy's race and two corrections to the spelling of names. Please advise of any queries with any other results.
Well done to all the individual and team winners and medallists.
