Gleaming Gladdis Glides to Victory

Mike Hilborne reports from the May time trial.

A beautiful spring evening heralded the May time trial. Road works alongside the clubhouse meant that the start was moved to the car park entrance.

One or two members declined the run this month with the North Dorset Marathon taking place on the coming Sunday. Nonetheless, a strong field of 18 determined runners (Rae and Kat ran the course as well, but just for ‘fun’) headed off on the testing course.

Lou set off first and ran a consistently steady and capable time to finish in third place.

Gerry set off like a greyhound and by the finish it was a case of ‘sprightly Hutchings hares nimble-footed to second place’.

While this provided a worthy sub-plot there was an emphatic winner and the star act was Rachel, with a headline of ‘gleaming Gladdis glides to victory’.

The fastest time of the evening, 25 minutes, 11 seconds was set by Sharon. On the finishing straight Danny made a valiant effort to outsprint Sharon, before ceding to her extra pace.

Well done to everyone who took part. As the plaudits were handed out in the form of the top three placings there was a common air of satisfaction and congratulation.
