The above course record are believed to be correct at the time of release, however the female record posted is the best that we have found during events held under CTT rules and regulations that were Open or Association events. Please don’t not confuse this time with Strava posting or club events held on the beacon.

If you can supply us with documentary proof of better times we shall amend the times, remember the event must have been held under CTT (RTTC) rules and regulations.
