Well done to Joe Skipper who I believe warmed down by doing a ten mile run, that is quite incredible! Well done also to Jennifer Smart who won the Pat Pepper Trophy for the first time.                                                                                
                                                                                
Even though finishing 7th overall, Paul Groombridge was 4th on scratch. This was due to the fact that those who finished 4th, 5th and 6th overall also won the Vet Category which attracted a higher prize.                                                                                
                                                                                
As a club, we were pleased to see a large entry of women. The Wolsey RC continues to promote women’s racing and we hope to see not just the women, but everyone back for next years’ event.                                                                                
                                                                                
Many thanks to all the marshals and helpers who came out to support the event, as ever I could not have run the race without you.                                                                                
                                                                                
Finally apologies for the early morning frost, this never happened when I ran the event in July. But at least this was my 20th consecutive year without rain!
