We had 32 runners turn out for what we thought was going to be a very wet and windy night – but fortunately the weather held off for the run.
They were 9 new faces – well for me and the time trial there were – so apologies for any bad handicap times or misspelling of names. First 3 over the line were Neil Marshall with a run time of 27.27, Katherine Hill 28.20 and Steve Corcoran 28.25. Bringing up the rear on the night was new member Matt Cox and Patrick Nesden.
Times will be reviewed before the next one in December. Fastest male runner on the night was Ben Coldwell with a run time of 19.12 and picking off 20 runners. Fastest female was Alice Murray-Gourlay with a run time of 20.34 and picking off 18 runners. One other name to mention – and watch out for was Paul Hallam who had a run time of 20.22 and picked off 23 runners to finish 4th, just missing out on a podium position by 12 seconds.
Anybody spotting any obvious errors please let me know asap. Many thanks to Peter Hey for organising & co-ordinating, Alan Brydon and his stubbed toe for doing the timing and Lucy Churm for guiding runners out and back to avoid any cheating !!! Adam Moger would have been there too but had some lame excuse about Anna going into labour and giving birth to Samson Harry weighing in at about 10lbs. Hopefully all 3 are doing well.

The next one will be in the second week of December (I think), likely to be a Wednesday. Check the training schedule when it is published at the end of the month.
Remember, this is a winter series & points are accumulated based on your finish position in each TT, with your best 4 results of 6 to count.

Good luck all in the Abbey Dash!
