Compass Sport Cup Final

Apologies for not putting something on the website earlier, I missed the moment due to being away and then it seemed too late...

Anyway, as most of you will already know, BOK came 5th in the Compass Sport Cup Final held at Sutton Park on 19th October. We fielded a team of 67 runners, fairly well balanced across the classes, but nevertheless lacking some of the strength and depth we enjoyed for the Qualifying round, particularly in the younger age groups. The competition was as tough as expected, and our Juniors faced a particularly tough challenge against some very talented opposition, many of whom were competing at levels below their normal standard, resulting in some very fast winning times. Congratulations to SYO for winning the Cup, also to FVO for retaining the Trophy. Many thanks to everyone who turned out to support the Klub, hopefully everyone enjoyed the day out in fine surroundings and relatively fair weather. Full results here. A report will also appear in the forthcoming BOK News.
