    Congratulations to Liam for crossing the finishing line in first place and for the solid performance. I won in 2004 when the legs to run were 5 and the powerful Ian Fisher was in my team, I was the last leg to ran , it was good to be first on the finish line. Compliments to Scott H. and to Tom M. as well. Also the ladies team ran well . Not bad at all the other Otley team , especially Jeremy S. with 19.32 ran strongly.
