Only 19 runners on Wednesday night at our annual Xmas Handicap with quite a few more turning up afterwards some laden with cooking pots). Nevertheless it was a most enjoyable run & evening with hot soup just which just hits the spot and gives a festive feel! Thanks to those who time keeped, Louise, Jo, Helen, Kathryn & Andy & Joe & Mario at the turnaround point, Dave & Lesley for organising the supper & all those who made a delicious variety of soups.
Well done to handicap race winner John who did the double by winning this years summer handicap too. Fastest time was Colin in a tad under 19 mins. From my perspective it was amazing being in a race being overtaken by fast runners and crossing the finishing line within sight of Colin!! Over half the field came in within a minute so the handicaps based on the last 3 Border League results or power of 10 parkrun/5K times were not too far out!
A Happy Xmas & New Year to you all and here’s to some good running & races in 2017.
