Results for the Grandborough h/c, 19-Apr-2015

This year’s handicap races got underway over the gently undulating course near Grandborough. Although there is a competitive side to the races the series also provides an opportunity for a social run or to use the race for training or for newer members the chance to run the distance in an informal competition. Once again the handicap series proved to be popular with old and new members alike as a record turnout for Grandborough of 36 runners took part, with 14 of those running the course for the first time.
Winner of the first race of the year was Andy Norton who finished in 37:16 over 5 minutes quicker than his estimated time.

The next race is on Thursday 14th May at Brinklow starting at 7:00.

In second place was Tracey Higgins in 42:50 who was also well inside her estimated finish time. Tracey was followed home by Amarjit Randhawa, having used the Regency 10k as his warm up completed the course in 37:12. The quickest run of the day was by Garry Barnes who finished in 32:12 with Collin Taylor (33:58) and our new men’s captain Wayne Broadbent (34:06) completing the top three. Nearest to their estimated time was Paul Bergin whose finishing time of 37:55 was 5 seconds inside his guess. A special mention goes to Robyn McSharry who took part in her first handicap race and finished in 8th place in a highly respectable time of 36:53, well done. It was good to see two of our juniors taking part in the race and it would be great if we had one or two more juniors trying the races to provide some competition for the junior awards as this has been missing from the handicap races for several years now.

Despite the cool wind the conditions didn’t stop 13 runners from recording a new PB for the course, including last year’s winner Mark Moran who took 4 minutes off his time from 2014.
