Hannington Hike

Welcome to the event page for the Hannington Hike, BBN's challenge event in Northamptonshire:

Hannington Hike

Hannington Hike 1st March 2020

Finishing Times

There was a misunderstanding amongst us about start times, so please take the total times with a pinch of salt. Strange expression, but you know what we mean. We only recorded two start times, 08.00 and 09.00. Some may have started before 0800, many started sometime between 08.00 and 09.00, and some started after 09.00.
On the list for next time, 2022, will be to have a rolling start.
