I thought it best to crack on and let you know how the championship finally finished back in March. We started out with 13 races but, obviously due to Covid19, this was cut short to 11 with your best 5 races to count. Thank you to all who helped with this year’s championship: I couldn’t have done it without you.
In total we had 39 men and 17 women take part in at least 1 race, which is a drop of about 20 runners from the first season; hopefully you will all be wanting to get back out racing and be in with a chance of some superb prizes when this year’s competition gets underway in October (hopefully).
In the battle for the women’s title Joanna Lockwood once again finished in 1st place and therefore defended her crown from the previous year. 2nd, 3rd and 4th was a tight contest between Lynne Robinson, Vicky Trudgill and Michelle Greenwood battling it out for glory rights.
Trophies will be presented to the winners as well as a bottle of the finest bubbly for 2nd and 3rd places.
1st Joanna 317.51 pts
2nd Lynne 287.91 pts
3rd Vicky 284.77 pts
4th Michelle 281.35 pts
In the Men’s battle we had a reverse of last year’s top 3, with Paul Greenwood, finding some fast form to overcome the old timers of Simon Brady and Andy Dovernor, to finish top of the pile in a very close competition thus snatching the trophy away from Simon.
1st Paul 383.82 pts
2nd Andy 383.11 pts
3rd Simon 382.43 pts
4th Steve Brook 345.45
If anybody is wondering I came 5th.
Well done to you all! There was some fantastic running from everybody. Let’s keep up the motivation and prepare for when the racing can begin again.
