Report by Dave Kear

It was a cool but still evening that greeted the runners on the Quayside for the Autumn handicap, and it was a group of newer members of the club who took the race honours.

Lisa Bunclarke won by such a margin that she almost caught the finishing officials unawares as she completed the course close in fine style alongside the railings.  Jess Fearnley, Lucy Eland & Debbie McRory then followed on to complete a terrific ‘all-female first four’.

Skilful handicapping then took over as most of the rest of the field strode in in very close order.  The field of 40 had an unusually even male/female balance, and also a good blend of experienced club members and more recent recruits to the club.

Best times of the evening were produced by Jonathan Clare (23:29), Matthew Kingston (24:13), Luke Bryant (24:33) and Paul Hughes (24:58).

Leah Xandora (28:21) was fastest amongst the ladies, with a closely fought contest between Kate Sergeant (28:58), Julie Cross (28:59) & Tracey Etherington (29:01) for the next best times.  Sarah Bowen (29:07), Charlotte Spencer (29:15), Melanie Fisher (29:20) and Sarah Kerr (29:34) also recorded very good times under the ’30-minute barrier’.

Matthew Kingston’s 17th place in the race proved good enough for him retain the Shield for the best Aggregate Points Score (last 4 handicaps).  Matthew’s 72 points tally keeps him ahead of Randy Ballesteros (77 pts) and Alan Hansell (79 pts).

Our thanks are owed again to Lorna for co-ordinating the food orders at the Café de Vie and all the volunteer officials & marshals who helped to make it an enjoyable and successful evening.

Next club handicap, towards the end of January on the Quayside course.
