Fantasy Fell-running – Results
Thanks to all that entered the Edale Skyline Fantasy Fell-running competition. Sorry the results have taken longer than expected – unfortunately I dropped a major clanger by failing to specify what would happen in the event of a tie.
After some deliberation it was decided to resolve this using the ‘longest correct subsequence’ from the predictions. Fortunately this algorithm is O(n log n); unfortunately it produced a further tie. After more deliberation (this time unilateral), ties have been broken by excluding non-finishers from the results. This wasn’t guaranteed to work either but luckily it did.
Congratulations to Paul Tierney, this month’s Fantasy Fell-running champion, with Ben Abdelnoor the runner-up on tie-break. Special mention to Dan Duxbury who as well as coming third would have been the clear winner had non-finishers been excluded from the results. This might be something to consider if we do this again – comments and suggestions would be welcome (email link below).
Once the dust peat has settled, the Chairman’s Statistical Analysis will follow later in the week.
