TIME TRIAL MON 16TH JAN
We had 26 runners for this the 4th time trial of the winter series. We only had 2 new faces for this run of this seasons. Sheila King an “old” new face and Sarah Barnes who has only been down to the club a few times, but is now thinking of joining our motley crew. Hopefully this run did not put her off. It was a damp but not too wet a night and not too cold for the late starters to hang around for 15 minutes or so. Well I felt warm in my 4 layers? A resident must have lost twopence or something as the road had been turned over in the search for it, necessitating a very slight change to the start and finish line. Hopefully this did not affect the pb situation as we had 7 pb’s, or could it have been reverting to the “old” way around. The pb’s went to Liz Walker 27.53, Sarah Ruxton 26.27, Hannah Newman 27.00, Simone Solgado 25.00, Matt Kasparek 22.14 Mark McKone 23.12 and Lee Hardy 19.53. Lee was the fastest runner on the night – just beating Stephen Burrell Ben Coldwell and Tim Dixon. Bringing up the rear was Stephen Knight who must have been trying to be last as he was spotted going in the wrong direction at one stage. Just in front of him was Jacquie Elmer, who may have had a bad run – or just suffering from a bad handicap, following two good finishes in earlier races. At the front this time – again probably more a fault of bad handicapping – or coming back into form – was Sam Broome in a run time of 31.53, second was Matt Kasparek with 22.14 and third Malcolm Taylor with 25.28, just missing out in 4th place, having overtaken 18 runners was Lee Hardy. The fastest lady on the night was Sheila King with 24.05. Many thanks to Gary Carlisle, Jemma Roe and Lucy Churn and her furry friend for ensuring all runners started on time – and we got them in the right finishing order – including Martin Fraser. Any queries on the times – please let me know.
On Saturday the County XC Championships took place at Lightwater Valley. We had 5 men in the senior mens race and Alice Murray-Gourlay on her own representing us in the womens race. Alice also organised the teams for the event so thank you Alice.
This is a high level of competition so well done to those who took on the challenging multi-lap course. Alice came in an excellent 22nd out of 155 in her race.
