Club Championships 5 mile XC Woodford Golf Course 21/1/17
Wed Jan 25, 2017 21:29

A great turnout for the annual club XC race. Moved to January due to a busy calendar in December, it was a cold and frosty morning. However, the sun shone and there was no wind. So, perhaps a little less muddy than desired but good conditions nonetheless. 45 runners crossed the finish line, which is possibly a record, certainly the most since 2004

Great to see some new club members running (and getting lost) for the first time, and upholidng this essential club tradition.

Well done to male winner Sam Humphrey, closely followed by Neil Cook and Dave Jones (last year's winner). For the MV40 Category Paul Gaimster was just behind in fourth.

For the women Mandy Dohren was first, followed by the 'Williams Sisters of VPH' Hazel and Robin Norton-Hale. To complete the set, dad Richard helped out on the timekeeping on the day!

There were many notable performances on the day, and smiles all round. Personal highlights were Cate running with her dog, and seeing Chairman Dave recently back to running who managed to complete the course. Some great pictures can been on the club's facebook page - thanks to all of those who took pics and posted them.

Great to have marshalls on the course this year, reduced (though not entirely) the number of folk going off course!

Big thanks go to the many many helpers on the day, including
course setting: Neil Cook, Gary Bagnall, Frank Merrigan, Captain Sim
timekeeping: Richard Hall, Len Williams, Rodney M, Rachel Morison
marshalls: Frank, Gary, Paul Mee, Chris Watkeys
