The recent birth of a calf provided a bit of pre-race drama at Colin’s Calverley handicap as some other runners out on a training run were very concerned at the state of the mother. Soon after Ian had set off on scratch and a visit by the farmer she was back on her feet chewing on the grass, so panic over, or maybe it was a visit by Andy W that was the reason for the rapid recovery!
After saving the mother cow from her near death experience, Andy sprinted hard in the final few metres to snatch victory from Sean with Nicola in a clear third. Running the course for the first time, it was hardly a surprise that Ian recorded the fastest time with a new course record. Sean and Andy move to the top of the table on 143 and 133 points respectively, Charlotte dropping to third on 131. See the full table here. The next one is the 5 miler at Weeton on 29th November. Thanks to Colin for marking the route, due a better handicap next time honest…
