In somewhat balmy weather compared to the June washout, 25 members attended the July series of the handicap, a great turnout. Everyone ran very well, with three first timers taking part this month – Jess Metcalfe, Alison Winders and Andy Hazell.
There were PBs for Nick Metcalfe and Jim Haffey, on an evening in which the heat seemed to win over most runners.
Congratulations go to Colin Carpenter for coming 3rd, Graham Robinson for coming 2nd, and Nick Metcalfe for coming in 1st. As it was only my second run, I shall save any victory speech for any potential future wins….! If you’re wondering how the results from June affect the overall standings, wonder no more!
For those of you who have not taken part in the handicap, what are you waiting for?! It’s a monthly fun, club-run event, held on every second Wednesday of the month, in which you complete 2 laps of a 2 mile course. The finishing order is not determined by who came in quickest, but how you did against your own previous efforts, so you’re only racing yourself! It is a fun event, and there’s a curry afterwards, so what more could you wish for?!
Thanks as always to Simon and Anne Whillis for organising such an enjoyable club event, and we’ll see you all in August at the next handicap, taking place on Wednesday 14th August.
