Tarrant Valley 10K Ė Tarrant Monkton Ė 19 July 2015

Steve Wyatt reports

A scorching hot day, hills getting steeper by the year, astonishing pub prices at the Langton Arms. YES, another fabulous run in the Tarrant Valley. Quite a few WACers were on show today as well as lots of Poole Runners so it could be a club championship thing! Ryan Walbridge came in as 1st U20 whilst we think Lynne Hutchings was first female Vet (there were a couple of ladies ahead of her but as one doesnít like to ask a ladyís age, who can tell? (A punch on the nose does offend me after all!)

It was nice to see Chris (thinking about joining WAC but waiting until 1st August when itís cheaper) Wood in a very strong 10th position. Great to see you Chris - get your cheque book out! Also running today was Julie (Iím a grandma) Gosling - congratulations! Special mention goes to the gentsí loos - a fantastic bit of de-turfing and the best canvas screens in a 50 mile radius.

As this could be a race where we have to wait a while for the results, no doubt our very own statistician David Wild spent his run doing complex mathematical equations to calculate the relative positioning of club participants compared to their position on the leaderboard. If in any doubt I always use the following: identify WAC position in race, convert into points, double it, take away the points number you first thought of and then add that number to your club champs total - works every time!
