The weather was certainly not hospitable for this the first race in the Jubilee series, but it certainly didn’t stop Ben Fish from posting a great time of 24.54 as he won from last years winner Gareth Booth (27.09) who was very pleased to be just 18 seconds slower than last year. Gareth is just returning to some sort of form and raced exceptionally well, pulling away strongly from Neil Pendlebury on the second lap.
Steve Nolan ran well for our second man home in 9th place running marginally slower than last year with 28.06. Glyn Kay clocked a solid 28.30 to be our third team counter, with Simon Parkinson (29.14) making up the team in 17th place and taking over a minute from last years time, well done Simon.
The ladies could not quite pull off a first team place, but second team was fine with Gaynor Higson leading the way in 34.46 and 10th lady. Christine Boardman continues to improve on her times with a favourable improvement of 29 seconds from last year. Making up the team and racing well at the moment was Kath Swindells in 42.40, well done ladies. It wasn’t a massive turn out from the club with just 17 runners, but 14% of the field is not bad.
