Moira Woodward started and finished first in the Clubs 2009 Handicap race. Roly Hobbs was the first man home. Chris Gaze quickest on the night. A great was organised by Ray and Mel Williams. Despite the appalling conditions there was a good turn out, the exact details to follow as someone has snaffled the results! The course was one lap of the 10K Course and in fact after the torrential ran had stopped conditions were almost ideal. After the exertions of the evening everyone relaxed with a few drinks, some excellent chips and a game of Skittles.
An excellently organised event saw a great turn out, both generally but particularly from Dursley runners. A brisk wind kept everyones' core temperatures down, making runners work against a head wind at the start and in the section running into Berkeley, but runners enjoyed a tail-wind as they ran back to the powerstation.
The event was won by Steve Millward of Gloucester AC in 00:32:23 with Paul Hocking from Stroud and District second in 00:32:39 and Andrew Hussey, Cheltenham and County Harriers, third in 00:32:29. Gloucester AC taking the Senior Male team prize. Mel Williams (Dursley and District AC) having been heavily involved in the organisation came in first LV45 in a PB of 46.13, Rebecca Topham again from Dursley was first LV35 in 43.28.
