October 2008 - Leigh Road  3.75m Time Trial

With the nights drawing in, it’s time to turn to the streets of Wimborne and street lighting for our time trial. With the restricted access over the river bridge on Poole Road, Neil found us a new time trial route. The start point was at the foot of St John’s Hill, then along Leigh Road to Hayes Lane, through Canford Bottom and then back along Wimborne Road West/Leigh Road for the long straight-ish section to St John’s Hill. The course is by far the flattest time trial route we have used and it is a little shorter than we are used to, at 3.75 miles.

We equalled the biggest field set in last month’s time trial and saw five first-time trialists. Well done to Martin Driscoll, Graeme Furley, Mike Porter, Terry Sims and Guy Thompson.

‘Bionic’ Graeme Furley was the first one in, and he set the course record in the process.  Well done to Guy Thompson too who was the only other runner to run sub-25 minutes. There were some other terrific runs throughout the field – Sue Driscoll, Georgie Hougham and Paul Teck all put in eye-catching performances. Andy and Stuart both had a great run after returning from long lay-offs.  Kevin Elliott and Jools Maskell had a real tussle – setting off on the same handicap and finishing just 10 seconds apart.

It’s hard work being the timekeeper with such a big field, so a big thank you to Jill Harsent who took on responsibility. It was particular difficult to work out the handicaps on a new course with so many new runners. Well done to everyone who took part.
