  1. It is a shame that our Ian Fisher had to pull out for injury , 15 years ago or more on the same course Ian was flying to victory when just before the finish he was doubling me and I was blocking his way on the narrow footpath and I sent Ian flat hitting the ground badly , I felt really bad about it , thanks god that he had massive lead on the second runner so that he went on to win the race anyway .

  2. Super racing by Vicky S. in this last cross country , although she had a flying start , Vicky kept going at a strong pace finishing in 21.25 a fabulous time . The senior member and experienced runner Colin B. had a splendid afternoon running in 40.44 a great time to do . Also Laura M. ran well .
