This 8.5 mile course with its rolling hills can be a little tougher than its eight mile tag, making pace judgment difficult, even so we had three in the first ten with Gareth Booth (48.26) our first counter, very happy with his time, but possibly a little disappointed he could not hold on to the pack of four chasing after Tony Valentine – who went for it from the gun. Rob Jackson (49.01) fought hard all the way round running well for eighth place and 2nd 0/40. Paul Muller (49.35) took his customary 0/50 prize in 11th place, and with Steve Nolan (49.55) running with Paul all the way round, they made up the winning vets team. Suzanne Budgett (58.02) was our only lady entered, and was happy with her run, and her 0/45 category prize.
We had eleven running, full results at: http://www.ukresults.net/2008/villages.html
