For the second Saturday in succession the day started brightly with sunshine until cloud and rain replaced the weather but this time, fortunately for our runners, the races were behind us.
The course itself was undulating but with reasonably good going on parts of the circuit. Our turnout in general was good but this time we were missing some key athletes: two that had to withdraw - one through breathing difficulties and Ben Sloan making a wise decision to call it a day after he could feel a slight twinge in his right leg. Although present as a spectator Jimmy Geller is still recovering from his appendix removal just over a week ago. Another two Under 15 boys were rested as both are going through growth spurts.
