Handicap newcomers, Sarah (S), Warren, Steve (Briggs), Gerry, Maggie & Lesley all laid down their marks but I had sadly over-estimated Gerry's fitness and sent him off with Dan who promptly opened up a lead of 30m by the first bend and that was the last Gerry saw of him.
Many thanks to Ian who set off running with Maggie and ended up encouraging Josh (Kevin's son) round the course.
Is there more climb on the Cotleigh course? Do all the PB's mean it's faster? Actually the climb is almost identical at about 225ft. Also the course was about 20m short as we should have finished on the grass through the carpark. Next month we will move the start up to the bend in Cleverhayes lane, to keep out of the way of the traffic and also to make up the missing 20m.
