Matt's words on our first home promotion of the Winter
31 runners took part in this year’s Club 5 race at Sheen Gate in Richmond Park. In addition to K&P runners there was a good turnout from Thames Hare & Hounds and Milos.
Runners from Thames dominated the race, taking the first 6 positions but first in for K&P was James Robertson (7th), followed by Matt Hyett (8th) and Mike Maranzano (10th). In 2nd overall was our T&F member,Gordon Pearce.
Jon Cook was the first Vet home in 12th, followed by Ant Budarkiewicz (18th) and Nicky Atkins (22nd), Nicky also taking gold as first K&P woman.
Two K&P runners new to the Club 5, Loic Malroux and Ben Reynolds, along with Peter Wilkins ran in close succession, placing 13th, 14th and 15th respectively. We were also pleased to see runs from Richard Holt, Neil Mears (running as a K&P guest), Natalie Sacre, Caroline Jeffcote, Cashel Riordan and Clare Nelson.
My thanks to all those who flagged, marshalled and officiated on the day.
