The second race of the Gwent League was held at a wet Blaise Castle on Saturday 4th December 2010. Despite being a ‘home’ fixture the turnout from the club was relatively low but amongst those who did turn out several ran well as already identified in Mike Down’s Performances of the week.
In the Senior Men’s Race there were 229 finishers with the first club finisher Dan Woolford in third place in 36.11. Behind him Michael Johnson (5th in 36.27), Steve Francis (6th in 36.52) and Matt Peters (11th in 37.24) all performed well, while Chris Dodd was a little disappointed with hs sixteenth place in 37.58 (but it was a long way over distance and not the preferred under foot conditions for Chris.
In the Senior Women’s race Erica Golland was first club finisher (15th in 23.41) and Alison Hurford had a fine run for 31st place in 24.26. Again there was a good field with 135 finishers.
