What a night! 33 runners, 11 ladies and 22 men contended with the hills, mud, tree roots, rabbit holes, steps and bridges. A lovely cross country race with tracks along open fields and through woodland bordering the River Hamble.
Great to have most of the regulars along, with some first appearances this season of Tom Craggs (6th), Ed Gurney (38th), Andy Parkinson (62nd) and James Pilgrim (86th). The men's team came 3rd and comprised of Tom Craggs (6th), Pete Samsome (11th), Graham Bungay (15th), James Moore (23rd) and Joe Chick (24th).
For the ladies, we enjoyed Sarah Gurney joining us for the first time this season, finishing a very controlled 22nd and still with an intact hamstring! The ladies team finished 4th and comprised of Emma Gorwood (6th), Sam Parkinson (12th) and Emma Carter (18th).
So we have 4 races left that we can run in. The next one is at Marwell on Wednesday 6th July at 7.30pm, lots of open fields and woodland again, often with some quite strange animal noises emanating from the zoo. Hopefully not too many birds to distract Steve Oliver though!
In July we have 3 RR10's on consecutive weeks and then please pop 17th August in your diaries as the RR10 that Winchester host at IBM Hursley when we need lots of volunteers.
