Chagford Challenge 2013
The 2013 Chagford Challenge was held on Sunday 24th March. the weather put off a few of the entrants - but not that many.
Whilst driving up to assist manning the checkpoint at Bonehill Rocks, the temperature dropped and wind increased. The effects of the ice and frost on the granite outcrops and windswept grass was truly spectacular. The CP is approximately 1000 feet above sea level and was freezing. Others were manning checkpoints another 600-700 feet higher on really exposed ridges. I was thankfull that Les and I had not been allocated there.
The following is a gallery of the event. The first picture of the mass start was taken by Group Secretary, Tim Crosby. all the remaining ones by member Chris Taylor. I think they really sum up the day very well.
