Another big turnout in the senior race for the second round of the Ellison NESS League, held by Great Bentley RC at Hilly Fields! 14 women and 25 men Striders. After a miserable day of weather on Saturday, conditions were surprisingly good – warm, and the sun was out! GBRC put on a great race – the course was a very good selection of all that’s on offer at Hilly Fields, and it was very well marked out and marshalled. Only Colchester Harriers and Ipswich Jaffa fielded bigger teams than us overall (47 and 42 respectively). Our ladies team finished in fifth, and the men’s in third. That gave us third position overall on the day, also maintaining our third place in the league. If you want to see all the results in detail they can be downloaded from the NESS website. Well done to everyone who came and ran today! Many thanks to Allison Gillian for doing the scoring. And the juniors – thanks to the four kids flying the flag, Vicki Robbins for getting them organised, and Dave Smith for coordinating the juniors league. And thanks Sharon Bannister for the team photo.
