Well done to all 28 runners, lots of great times posted on a very picturesque Autumn morning at the Meadows – hope you appreciate us sorting out perfect running conditions for the race!

Particular congratulations go to Jacqui Rairnge (fastest female time), Iain Macdonald (fastest male time) and of course Richard Clark – a very worthy overall winner, continuing to improve at almost every race this Autumn. Massive well done again Richard!!

Events like today’s can’t happen without a great squad of volunteers so Alex, along with myself, would like to pass on his thanks to:
– Argy, Garry, Eric and Al Jackson for getting the course set up
– The race recording dream team of Neil, Marion, Garry and Line judge Alex Jackson (who had 2 dead heats to validate!)
– Stewarding team of Kat, Jane, John, Alastair, Steve and Sarah, expertly put together by Lyndsey
– Master Bakers/Chef Extraordinaires Richard and Colin
– Cath, Jonathan, Eric and Henderson Wines for donating a fine set of prizes to make sure every runner receives just rewards
– Memorabilia suppliers Alex and Alex
– Tidy Upper Dave S
– Photography team Argy, Dani and Gaz
– And finally on course vocal encourager Bryan!

I hope everyone who came along had a good time – next handicap will be around April/May so would be great to see you all back for some more then.

Peter Simpson
