Bob roars to victory in the sun

Chris Archibold reports from the June time trial

The June time trial was blessed with lovely weather with bright sunshine and high temperatures. Not sure how the runners felt, but I enjoyed the good weather sipping my water from the comfort of the clubhouse.

That said the good weather did bring a good entry to the time trial with 23 runners setting off into the evening haze. The handicaps worked out well with all of the runners coming back within seven minutes of each other over the testing course and the heat.

Steve Wyatt produced a great run to be the fastest around the course in 23 minutes 14 seconds, and a great run from Tora Stacey sets an impressive benchmark for the next time trial. There was a lot of individual battles across the field which made for an exciting end watching the sprint finish up the car park.

With Rachel Gladdis not defending her title from May and opting for a glass of wine in the garden instead, a new champion was waiting to claim the prize. This went to Bob Caines who led from start to finish and included a good sprint for the line despite not being under any pressure. A great time of 34 minutes 38 seconds especially in the heat and follows on from a great performance in the recent Poole 10k. Fingers crossed the weather holds for the July time trial and another good entry.
