Race 2 of the championship series was the ever-popular Gartmorn 6 trail race. Wattie took the honours for the men, finishing 6th overall and 1st MV50. Next in was Andy Gallagher in 48th position (8th MV50), with Wendy Taylor close on his heels in 50th position overall, (7th woman). Tony Wayte was next in shortly afterwards, with Jim Alexander and Gary Brock not far behind. Maddy Watson was next woman home in 103rd position, ahead of Nicola Watson in 128th position.
Points from the race confirm Wattie's place at the head of the men's table, with Andy Gallagher and Jim Alexander close together in 2nd and 3rd. For the women, the table is headed by the three women who have done both races to date - Nicola, Lauren and Rowan.
There were also a host of good performances from the Juniors, with strong runs from Duthac and David in the boys race, and very good runs from Beth and Leya in the girls race. Buffs and Creme eggs were the welcome awards for finishers in the juniors race.
