An excellent 2nd place in the Senior race,just 2 points adrift of Runnymede Runners,signalled Debbie's team's intention of returning to Div One at the first attempt. However,like the Men,there was a meagre turnout,just 6 Seniors and 6 youngsters.
Running into 20th overall,Rachel Burbridge's runners-up slot(20.48) in the Div Two section,led us superbly home;Nicky Atkins also showed good form,in advance of her Abingdon Marathon race two weeks hence,taking 11th(23.18);Barbara Mueller was a fine 19th(23.55);Avelline Deighton 23rd(25.09),Debbie Raymond 33rd(25.09) & Johanna Gibbons 74th(28.17).The team scored 88pts to Runnymede's 86. The field of 252 showed 97 in the lower division match.Once again,though,it was the regulars who did the business - where are the rest!
In the younger races,Tiffins Girls supplied 4 of the 6 runners - Lucy Clacher(as ever) was 21st(11.47) in a field of 42 whilst Molly Renfer was 22nd(21.34) in the U15/U17 race with Maddy Garner 25th(21.55), Hollyfield's Kelly & Linda Randall 43rd/49th at 24.13/25.33 and Harriet Lester 54th at 27.03(the latter informs the editor that she fully intends to RUN 400Hdls next summer). Some 60 finished that race and K&P were 4th U17 team,6th U15 team & 12th in the U13s. Summer member,Stephanie Espinosa excelled for Ranelagh,finshing an excellent 3rd in the U15 event.
