Full results on TPoT
Last Saturday saw the final Surrey League match of the season at Denbies Vineyard, Dorking.
The course had been changed slightly from the one we ran a couple of years ago, but remained nice and scenic..and hilly! (And this time there was no torrential rain for which I was grateful.)
It has been great to see a consistently good turnout from the juniors this season, and the young athletes race on Saturday was no exception. Once again Phil Bearman junior took first place, followed closely by Neil Wellard (3rd), under 13 Sam Shaw (10th), Sam Vassall (11th) and Harry Reynolds (13th).
In the U17/U15 category K&P came 1st in both the match, and 1st in the League table overall!!!- Congratulations! In the U13 category Sam Shaw single-handedly secured 2nd place in the match and 2nd place in the League table- again, very well done.
13 of us took part in the senior race. As has been the case throughout the season,James Robertson and Richard Mathie were our leading runners, finishing an impressive 3rd and 17th respectively. They were followed by Mark Reed, Andy Arbour, myself, Phil Bearman snr, Mike Maranzano, Peter Wilkins, Ant Budarkiewicz and Ben Reynolds. In his second Surrey League race Richard Vassall was next home, followed by Bob McDonough and Geoff Reed.
Whilst the team finished 6th on the day, we still managed to secure 3rd in the League overall, which is pretty good going.
