The WADAC Grand Prix awards were held on 25 June at the Queen Inn. The awards – ably put together by Andy Carton – go to those who accumulate the most points for WADAC in the Hampshire Road Race League. There is an age-adjusted league, a prize for the most improved and for anyone who shows enough commitment to do all 12 of the races.
For the women, the winners this year Lynne Whitaker, Natalie Cain and Sarah Gurney, and with age adjustment Jo Curtis, Shirley Dyson-Laurie and Joy Radford. For the men, Simon Stevens, John Gore and Chris Setters headed the senior awards, with Toby Lambert, Martyn West and Steve Goodwin coming out top after the age adjustment.
Standing out as the most improved this year was Susan Bryan. Four minute improvements at the Lordshill 10 and Gosport Half and a two minute gain at the Eastleigh 10K were good examples of her excellent season.
Both John Gore and Jo Curtis managed to run all 12 races, even if John had to hobble through the D-Day 10K!
Congratulations to Malcolm Green who completed the 2015 WHW 100 (West Highland Way 100) in 21 hours, 30 minutes and 50 seconds last weekend. The target was 'sub' 22 hours. A brilliant brilliant effort, well done Malcolm.
