The second Grand Prix of the 2017/18 season held on Sunday 9th July 2017 saw a record club turnout at the Claygate Country 5 with 58 club members completing the undulating 5 mile course around Arbrook Common. In hot and humid conditions, 26.2 RRC represented over 15% of the total field, with special mention to Victoria Haslam (2nd Female Senior), Daisy Street (3rd Female Vet), and Steve Ramek (2nd Male Vet). Rob Hinton and son James finished first Father and Son.
The 2017/18 Grand Prix season kicked off with the Dorking 10 mile race on Sunday 4th June 2017. Part of the Surrey Road League Series, the course takes on a shorter lap, followed by a longer lap, over the undulating country lanes to the south of Box Hill. Despite a cool start to the day, the heat soon began to build, creating testing conditions for the runners with the course largely exposed to the elements.
Congratulations to all who took part, in a highly competitive field.
