Five Croft runners competed in the last race of the series, with four taking away a category award. The course involves a steep uphill and a fast downhill, possibly made more slippery by the dry conditions (the leaves in the woods giving no grip). Mick comfortably (if you ignore the look on his face after the ascent!) won the over 55 category (48.23), followed by Gary (55.42) given the over 60 award (though now over 65), Nicky on this occasion beaten into 2nd place on the FV50 category but 5th overall in the ladies’ race (fantastic result) (56.20) but ahead of her close family rival, Suzanne, who emerged from her gently undulating training camp in Cardiff, and was recorded as a SL (57.25). Tom, never giving up, was 3rd over 60 in 62.30.
