After an excellent race last night in Barton under Needwood we have a new leader in Tom. He is closely followed by four runners close on his heels. With two races left it could all come down to low scores being discarded and replaced by a higher score. Watch this space. Christine leads the ladies closely followed by Mary. Next race on 10th December in Rugeley.

Tuesday night was the last of the summer season of training events. A reasonable night as it turned out, after a rainy day. A good few of the club turned out to try their hand at the courses set by John Robinson. The emphasis was on route selection and precise control placement. Just to make it more fun the control banners were omitted.
The courses were short 2k ish so people could run hard and then do another if they felt the urge. Tom won that section with 3 repeats. Inevitably people tended to be faster on the second or third attempt due to familiarity with both the area and control placement. Results can be found here.
Winter training starts next Tuesday in the gym….
