With the temperature hovering around 2°C, 16 ‘Icemen’ and 4 ‘Icemaidens’ competed in the Club Handicap last night. The cold, however, did not deter from the performances as the first six runners all recorded PBs, with Rosie Gerrard in 7th just 1 sec from hers, and then Jim Ley and Libby Marchant with PBs, and Jason Blair with an SB.
Richard Kirk was 1st to the line, 2secs in front of Rickey Emery, with Julie Rickard 3rd just 2 secs ahead of Danny Norman. All four knocked around 1 min off their PBs. Danny’s time of 16:25 puts him 4th in the ‘all time’ list at the expense of James Thurston, who drops off the bottom. Libby Marchant with her PB time of 21:28 was fastest lady.
It was also cold for my finish/marshall helpers, two of whom were new to the job, and my thanks to all of them for recording an excellent set of results.
