Grand Prix Race 9: The Perch 16th Jan 2010

What a day to remember !

I can not recall another time when 26.2 has recorded so many awards. Not only did Luke McDonagh convincingly win overall, Declan Flynn won the Mens M50 category and Zoe Ashcroft and Laura Roberts received awards. To cap it off the Mens team of Luke, Declan and Dominic Collier beat Tadworth to take the Mens Team prize and Zoe, Laura and Libby Marchant swept away East Grinstead Tri and Stragglers to win the Ladies team Prize. If there had been one, we would have easily taken the Mob Match award also.

Well done every one of the 36 club runners who took part in a most enjoyable Sunday morning run. Full race results and race report set out below:

Tadworth 10 – January 2nd 2011

10 club members made it to the start line of the Tadworth 10 – fewer than had entered, but still a reasonable turnout. As ever, the race was tough and at the painful end of ‘undulating’, though without the ice and sub zero temperatures of recent years. Both laps involved a bit of horse avoidance – there’s some discussion on Runners World that this might have been a deliberate attempt to interfere, given that all local stables are informed of the race, but let’s hope it was a one-off. 26.2 results follow.

January Club Handicap this Wednesday

Sorry, couldn’t join you this evening, seemed a bit cold and, anyway, already done two runs in two days, but look forward to you joining me and the ‘team’ on Wednesday for the first Handicap of 2011.  Weather prediction looks to be fairly reasonable, no icy patches like the last time, so will expect a good turnout.

As usual, initial registration will be at the Club with later arrivals being able to sign-in at the start in PIne Walk. I’ve attached the Analysis for the December race which shows any starting time changes where applicable.  Don’t be late.
