Club Mile Championships Results
After being washed out the previous week due to the apocalyptic thunderstorms, the club mile championships took place a week later under more favourable conditions (dry!)
This year’s event provided some close finishes particularly in the Senior Ladies race where U15 Millie Pearce managed to hold off Lore Blann and in the Senior Men’s where Nick Bugler finally got the better of U17 Daniel Racle. There were more clear cut victories in the age group races in particular Tessa Pearce, Thea Pratley and Aisling McHale.
Two new club records were set by Ann-Marie Jones (FV60) and Dave Attwell (MV75)
Thanks must go to Steve Roddis, Phil Nichol (timekeepers), Bob Spark, Damian Utton (recorders) and in particular to John Snape for his help in organisation and race starter and to Helen Simpson for her sterling work on registration
