15 HALOites successfully completed at least 4 events to qualify for a finishing position at the Scottish 6 Days. Their respective overall positions were:
W12A Emma Van Dam 53rd out of 73
W16A Yasmin Field 47th out of 91
W50S Rosie Field 54th out of 139
W55S Isoldt Harris 68th out of 78
W65L Mary Carrick 56th out of 76
M14A George Van Dam 41st out of 104
M14A Joe Field 80th out of 104
M20L Zac Field 20th out of 62
M20L Jake Field 45th out of 62
M45S Andrew Houlden 83rd out of 107
M50S Dean Field 14th out of 107
M55S Peter Harris 92nd out of 139
M55L Neil Harvatt 97th out of 209
M65L Brian Slater 145th out of 152
M70S John Butler 22nd out of 42
The competition was certainly tough in terms of both the terrain and the abilities of the rivals from all over the World. I am sure all thoroughly enjoyed their experiences, even Mary who surprisingly had 2 voided scores for failing to complete her course after running off the map and for mispunching!
To finish in the top half of one’s course was an achievement in itself.
The weather was predominantly dry, if predominantly cool and the midges were predominantly bearable – so predominantly ideal running conditions.
The above shows 2 HALOites finishing on different courses at Day 2 – considering there were 6000 entries this is more than a coincidence.
