123 runners (41 ladies, exactly one third) turned out for the first of the summer series, on a firm grassy course (apart from the detour through the wood, where Martin lost his shoe in the mud!) We were first team (Stacey, Simon, Dave A and Sue), and now have to hang on to that. Stacey ran well to finish 3rd (32.33), behind Jon Pugh and Luke. Simon was 6th (33.59) and Dave A (13th, 35.16) just kept ahead of Gavin (15th, 35.34) and Dave G (16th, 35.37) who were then followed by Neil P (20th, 36.35), Mark (21st, 36.39) and Mick (22nd, 36.59) who was 1st over 50. Eight of the first 22 runners were from Croft – a really good result. Pat (31st, 38.35), Sue (1st lady, 32nd, 38.38) and Martin (33rd, 38.43) formed the next Croft bunch. Jon ran well after an injury break to come home 40th (39.48) and Gary G (48th, 40.15) showed that the Man v Horse and training the night before hadn’t diminished his strength. Guy (50th, 40.41) just edged out Alison, before Frank crossed the line in 61st place (42.59). Dave R (snr) was 66th (43.41) and Tom 72nd (44.22). Liza (91st, 16th lady, 46.20) just held off Rachel (92nd, 46.30). Kayleigh (103rd, 49.23) beat 20 other runners, including Bryan (111th, 50.59) and Catherine (116th, 53.57). Results on Results page.
