BL at Capenhurst Sunday 14th Nov

A good day at the races! Excellent turn-out from both the men and the ladies. Thank you all. It was a big turn-out, 311 we think, second highest in BL history. A few people were surprise at their high places. No wonder with that many runners, in a fast, competitive race. Times will be good. Ann says that even though she was at the back, it was her fastest run for ages. I can’t remember when I last ran better than 8 minutes a mile. Well done everybody

And some superb positions too. Matt had a flying finish to get 5th place, with Jez in 10th, Simon in 20th and Eric in 28th. Six ladies, so even with Jane still injured we had a good result, Erika an excellent 55th (second lady I think).

It was good to see Paul D back, and welcome to Jeff on his first run for us – he was our last counter in 111th place. How good is that?

These are provisional positions, I took them off the score sheets, so there might be some slight changes particularly in the lower end of the results.

  3. Hi All,
    I have just been studying Rupert's website. There were 76 more runners today than there were at Caernarfon and 39 of them were women.
    I vote for more races in Caernarfon !!
