A new course for this years series made for interesting running. Starting and finishing on a bumpy field was difficult but was made up for by the pleasant mostly flat road section. Only two Jaguars made the journey south to toe the start line, Richard Collyer narrowly missed out on a pb with a gold standard time of 42.18, whilst Denver Slowther came home in 43.44 (silver standard). The next race in the series is on the 26th June.
Matt Stone was on form again today running a p.b. and taking the club age record for 5k. His time of 17.51 put him 5th overall out of a field of 366 runners. Henry Neal also ran well to record a p.b. time of 29.21. Mini Jag Maggie Mayo took a minute off her previous time to run 30.30 closely followed by Shirley Wilcox who was running her first ever Park Run. We all agreed that the best part was the coffee and cakes in the cafe aftewards.
The final race in this years series brought another excellent set of results. Steve Bates took the overall series win in the VM40 category with another sub 30.
