STAGLASGOW’s 13th 3 Parks In 1 day Sunday 4th December 2011

The 13th Edition has come & gone. Thank-you for your support. RouteGadget and results now available.

Sunday 4th December 2011 saw the 13th staging of the Event & an entry of just under 100 was received.

Races 1 & 2 attempted to achieve a leading time of 10 > 12 minutes in all groups except Social. In Race 3 – where there is a chasing start – a leading time between 22 > 25 minutes in each race was our aim.

Further to this, the Race 1 venue was only revealed by email on the preceding Thursday evening & parks 2 & 3 were only named after the preceding race on the Sunday.

Due to complexities with the computing side no further entries were accepted after 10pm on Wednesday 30th November 2011.


Craig Nolan (ESOC) won this event by scoring 3 points. 17 entries were received.
