The course was dry! and fast! 28 Croft runners in a field of 132 (over 20%) set off down the narrow dusty track, even if only 26 crossed the finishing line. Toby running for the club for the first time ran an excellent race (13th) just behind a suffering Andrew (11th). In the lead though was Simon, finishing 5th, with Mark also performing really well in 7th. With 6 runners in the top 20 (Glyn, 15th and Rob, 19th) we were easily able to hold on to 2nd place in the team rankings. Dave R (jnr) made a late decision to run and just beat Gavin into 22nd place. Vice chairman Dave stole a march on chairman Neil, crossing the line 14 seconds ahead. Mark G, in his first race for the club (?), did well to finish 38th. Sue D was first Croft lady, completing the A team, with Irina 2nd. Gary was 1st MV65, a little ahead of the fast improving Neil T. Jo was 3rd Croft lady, with Sam not far behind and Sue P ensuring we had 5 teams on the night. The B team was 4th, C team 8th, D team 12th and E team 17th out of 28 – an clear indication of Croft’s quality, and quantity!
