post-race it will be one we will return to. A lovely route of 5.75 miles a long tracks and forest

put in a very strong run to get the 2nd quickest time of the night with Norman James
Johnstone a few seconds behind.
ADAC ladies, Marie Marshall, Louise Hopper and Liz Dawson provided the highest 3 age
grade scores of the night with 69.6,68.5 and 67.5 respectively.
Louise showed that turning 60 was no hindrance to strong running by finishing ahead of the
rest in the handicapped race. Andy Robb finished 2nd with Alan Creighton performing well
to finish 3rd. Especial as Alan put out the signs on the route before the race!
Members were well rewarded for their efforts with a great "birthday buffet" afterwards to
help long time member Louise celebrate her 60th.
