A sextet of varying speeds,but boundless enthusiasm, represented K&P at the Priory Relays(4th) - Jamie McCullagh brought us in well up the field(5th - 13.40) on leg 1;John Burnett(14.59) kept us in the leading pack on 2;thereafter,it was damage-limitation,with Bob McDonough(M60)(17.44),Matt Hyett(17.09),Mike May(M45)(20.15) & David Barrington(M65)(21.28) conducting the exercise with diminishing returns in the gathering gloom - finishing 24th of the 33 teams.
Just 3 in the BPTT(4th) - but Frank(133rd-23.15) & Susanna(140th-23.21) eclipsed their previous bests,with Jonathan Kneebone 161st in 24.27.

The Women were the Saturday Specials (25th) with Bronze medals at the South of Thames 5m Champs on Epsom Downs - Rachel Burbridge led the team of 4 home in 9th(38.41),with Nicky Atkins 19th(41.29) and then Debbie Raymond 23rd & Johanna Gibbons 33rd.The race was won by evergreen Rachel Disley(for Thames H&H) in 35.19. The Men succumbed to anything you can think of,with only Matt Hyett(83rd) completing - in contrast to last year's most improved team medals! In the a.m.,Matt Taylor had finished 17th in BPTT,as our only runner.
