A good turn-out by Buckley Runners for the last race of the series. A smaller field than the last few races, but that is usual for this series. Many of the prizes are settled after the first three races, it is common to see the category winners watching this one. And this time there seemed to be no local runners turning up for a local race and filling up the bottom end of the results.
Quick shower, egg and chips and a drink and it is time for the presentation. Steve Bellis won MV55, Sue Ridings won FV50. It was good to see Marcus Reid completing the race, he had pulled out of the previous one with a leg injury. For his efforts and consistency he won 3rd MV45. He was delighted with his first ever prize. Well done Marcus.
Buckley Runners racing on the night; Paul Stinton, Rob Davies, Margaret Ludden, Rob Mackey, Mike Jones (plus Steve, Sue and Marcus). Results should be on Deestriders website in a day or two.
This is a great series. The course varies a little from year to year. This years tweaks were are huge improvvement bringing back some extra "off-road". It is well organised, friendly and good value. The weather has been kind this year. every race has been fine and dry. It was a warm, humid evening for the last one. Not ideal running conditions, but good for specatators and marshals.
