It was great to see so many sky blue vests back racing at Hereford racecourse for the three race series hosted by Hereford Couriers. A two lap course mainly on tarmac from Hereford racecourse around housing estates with a short gravel section back along the racecourse. The gravel sections did cause a slight dip in many runners pace due to being uneven underfoot so runners had to be more conscious of their footing but overall I think this did not worry the runners.
Croft turnout saw four runners take on the sub 20 wave with Eric Apperley, Jasper Robinson, Will Gore and Hannah Fletcher having fantastic result over the series.
Wave 2 saw many more sky blue runners with Alice Godding running really well finishing in top 3 females of each race. I finished after Alice, always having her in my sight but could never catch her. Greg Jones running well getting quicker each race shaving 24 seconds off altogether along with Dave Barrett also getting quicker each race shaving off 1min 20 between race 1&3.
There were many more personal bests and fantastic results from Emma Jones, Steph Main, Steph King, Gemma Davies, Lisa Gray, Tom Davies, Sue Field, Bryan Markham and Suzy Siddal all of which ran all three races.
Sam Juson, Ben Glinos, Louise Reeves, Robyn Gore, Jo Tilby, Theresa Jones, Jo Marriott, Ashley Robinson, Thea Preece and Roland Preece running 1 or 2 races through the series.
Official team results aren’t out but I think Hannah, Alice and myself should have the female prize. Also Bryan Markham and Emma Jones both won their age category.
A big well done to everyone for taking part. It was so nice to be back racing.
