What a finale! Thank you New Forest & Lymington Tri for a great race today, and as for the cake tent, WOW!! So lucky with the weather, just imagine running that course in the rain…
So, congratulations to the following:
1st Richard Waldron SAC, 2nd James Phillips Lymington Tri, 3rd Dan Campion Lordshill.
1st Nikki Roebuck Stubbington, 2nd Sam Parkinson Winchester, 3rd Emma Carter Winchester
1st Men’s Team Southampton AC, and 1st Ladies Team Stubbington.
Not so much feedback in the results’ emails this time, whether that’s due to it being Mothers’ Day or sheer exhaustion, I’m not sure, but some postie chap did complain that the course hadn’t been cleaned up very well! (He fell over twice!) He did have a twinkle in his eye when he said it though.
This is what you thought of it:
- The running mothers of Winchester were so taken by the groaning cake table before the race we decided to take a team photo, cake stall and ladies, amazing! It was nice to have a race with a little less mud than previous courses (just for change), with sunshine, friendly marshals and a real end of term feel, well done, we enjoyed the race despite some heavy legs.
- Thanks to New Forest and Lymo for today’s race – a great way to end the season, a Spring Classic! Bring on the RR10. Thanks for your efforts this season.
- Please extend our thanks to New Forest and LTC for a great, and tough, race. As usual they put on a great selection of cakes which were very welcome!
A great season enjoyed by hundreds of runners, see you at the RR10s!
