  1. Brilliant run Toni & Gemma congratulations on your 1st and 2nd places! Great start to the season and we’ll done to everybody else for coming out in the mud!

  2. Congratulation to Toni for winning the race with a brilliant run. Compliments to Gemma for her Championship’s lead ,got it with a solid performance at Eccup course. Also Ian had a good day around the reservoir , it is just a pleasure for me to see him running, passing me at three times more, maybe four, my running speed. Well done everybody who came to race in this windy Saturday .
