September 2009 Cowgrove 4 mile Time Trial

It was good to see the numbers taking part in the time trial creeping back up. We had one time trial debutant Kelly Williams. Kelly paired up well with Laura Booker and this enabled Laura to claim a time trial PB. Also running their fastest time trials yet were Gerry Hutchings, John Hutchings and Celia Ireland. It was great to see Peter Wood doing his first time trial for a very long time too. The fastest man out there on the night was Guy Thompson who was the only runner to go sub-25 minutes.

It is not too often we get a runner who manages to record consecutive time trial wins. Normally one good run pushes your handicap up and this makes it very difficult to repeat the feat four weeks later. Well done to John Hutchings whose form continues to improve at a dramatic rate (2.5 minutes improvement this month, to add to the 3.5 minutes he gained in August and this, over only 4 miles!). With the cross-country season just around the corner John is going to be a great asset to the team. Well done also to Kim Jolliffe who was renewing her acquaintance with the pointy end of the field for the first time in a while. It was good to see Claire Newby back out there again after a frustrating time with injury.

Our timekeepers/recorders on the night were Craig Dixon, Jess & Wendy Kennedy, Terry Simms and Nick Solomon. Full results for the time trial were:
