Final race of the winter series, held in glorious ‘summer’ sunshine and too hot for a fell race! Mick nevertheless had a good race, feeling he was benefiting from tips gleaned from Jim, finishing 33rd in 49.49. Guy was next (41st, 53.32) 1st over 60, and Tom 4th over 60 ( a stride behind a 60yr old Springfield Strider), 62nd, in 57.46, and faster than last year. Steve Cale won, in 37.28, a full minute ahead of Tim Davies. 87 completed the course.
