The top 3 Harriers home were all scoring in the 2nd division and its really hotting up.  Angus Milne had a great run and claimed his 2nd top points score from 3 races with a time of 1.01.53.  51 seconds back was Michael Vargas who has the same points after his 3 races.  Tom Thomas was 3rd in a time of 1.03.02.  He accidentally went through 5 miles in sub 30 and then everything went wrong.  Still he loved it and was happy with his time.

4th Harrier home was Philip Goose who wasn’t happy with his run but still got his 3rd top premier points score from 3 outings.  Michael Taylor and Rob Howard were next and along with a lot of runners picked up new 10 mile PB’s.

Mike Gallagher took max points in the 1st division on his first outing of the year.

Other stories from in the mens –   Mark Haddrill was loads faster than expected, going 7 minutes faster than last years and getting a new 10 mile PB.  Chris Bracchi managed a course and a 10 mile PB, while Paul Dickens decided he’d go for the train rather than the PB bus and got his fastest 10 mile race time.  Richard Edwards got a 3 1/2 minute 10 mile PB.

In the ladies Nichola Moreland claimed her first top points score of the year with a time of 1.19.32.  She had been aiming for 1.20 so was very happy.

Denise Hofman took maximum 1st division points and a cracking new PB on her first outing followed by Lois Gardner and then Alison Pullan who smashed here 90 minute target.

Next were Nicola Forward and Jane-Marie Bracchi.  Nicola had the following to say “Thanks for driving the bus Jane.  Loved working hard with you, Richard and Alys until Richard decided the bus was to slow.  Great results all around and a 30 minute PB”.

Jane also picked up a 10 mile PB and loved the course.  Even though she was 8 mins slower than last year, Lucy was positive post injury and took top points in the premier division.

Other comments – Claudia Bauer was 7 mins faster than last year and is happy with a 10 mile PB.  Clare Maxwell got a course PB, 1 minute faster than last year.  Caroline Sanders managed a 35 seconds PB over last year and was very pleased.

Tilly Rhodes was ill on the run but was happy to get another 10 miles in her legs while Jo Rhodes was nearly 9 mins off her time from last year.  Sara Elizabeth didn’t manage a 10 mile PB but knocked a great 7 mins off last year.
