    Preliminary results are up on event website. A very cold day on a tuff course with plenty of sleet and snow. Richard Smith having the most impressive run smashing his previous course record.

    It wasn’t the best day to attempt a particularly hilly half with persistent sleet and snow. Nontheless Tom M had a fine run in the conditions. Richard Smith knocked over 15 minutes off his time of last year. Lisa did a pb. The old men had torrid runs compared with last year. Howard was 9 minutes down and I was 8 minutes down. However he was 4th over 55 and I was a distant 3rd over 60. Well done to Matt B, Tom P (did he read his comment about Matt before posting?) Joe Webster and Jane B
