In addition to Tom's photos below, well done to the 24 from WADAC who took part in today's Winchester 10k. Provisional results are here. Particular congratulations to Natalie Cain for winning the ladies race, Susy Perry for third place and Sarah Shedden for joining the two of them in the winning team. For the men, congratulations also to George King for a close second, Ryan Snell in fifth and for joining me the winning men's team.
Thanks to all 27 WADAC members who made their way over to Ryde this morning for a hilly, cold and windy 10 miles. Unfortunately in order to have some of my day left for other things I did not stay to see the results. We had good teams though with a shout for both men's and women's team prizes, including third place to George King in a fantastic pb of 56 minutes. I was impressed that about 9 of use managed to catch the 12.47 ferry back!
Just a wee post-script......team wins indeed for the Men (George King, Simon Stevens, Ryan Snell) and the ladies (Marta Cecconi, Lynne Whitaker, Sarah Gurney) as well as age category prizes for Sally Easton, Lynne Whitaker, Jo Curtis, Simon Stevens, Jonathan Kane. Well worth waiting for the prize giving and the later ferry!
NB these were race team wins and the HRRL scores on a slightly different basis but must be looking good for the HRRL as well

Stubbington 10K results are available here.
58 WADAC athletes turned out, which is amazing. Well done to all of you. I know there was a host of pbs. Few can have done better than George King just ahead of me and 4 minutes ahead of his old self! Great to see Calum Upton coming up through the juniors and breaking 35 minutes - having raced cross country yesterday and qualified for the nationals I believe.
Glitches in the results system meant I could not stay for the prizes, but looks like we won men's and women's teams. The women also won vets team - it looks like they could have one it several times over! The men had a hugely encouraging 6 finishing in under 35:30.
Last but not least, Toby Lambert won! I gather it was a tussle at the front. He ended up beating his AFD rival by just 6 seconds.
