September 2008 Cowgrove Time Trial

Fabulous conditions for September’s time trial, and we set a new record for the most runners taking part (22). Apart from the 22 who appear in the results we had a few others (I can bring to mind Craig Dixon, Daryl Davies, Paul Grist) who ran rather than raced the route because of impending races and their times are not shown below.

There was a healthy number of new runners to the time trial so well done to Kevin Elliott, Paul Hougham, Sue Driscoll and Tom Wilson-Croome. It was great to see the return of both Barbara and Maddy whose names haven’t appeared on the timesheets for many months.

With our biggest field yet, a lot of new faces and some old ones running but not recording times, it gave our timekeeper Andy Porter something of a baptism of fire (his first time with the stopwatch). Andy has been out with a bad back since just before the London Marathon, and it was great to see him back at the club, within a couple of weeks he should be training with us once more. A big hand for Andy who did a superb job.

There were some terrific times recorded. Annemarie Fachiri, Jill Harsent, Ian Kennedy, Dave Pearson, Jerry Shield Maddy Vaughan-Johncey and David Wild all made gains of over a minute, and Tim Box and Nick Solomon came very close too.

‘Mr Consistency’ has to be Anthony Clark who over the last quarter has produced some of the fastest times we have seen, with a small improvement every time, but as the time trial trophy is awarded to the biggest improver it makes it very hard for the relentlessly steady improvers like Anthony to get their hands on the trophy.

Because the handicap is based on past results and measures improvements rather than outright speed it is also difficult for any of the top 10 per cent to win the time trail, but this month is an exception as Jerry Shield came very close to threatening Stewart Little’s course record of 25:11 and came home first.

Well done to everyone who took part.
