The first race of the season was run under wet conditions. After an untypically warm May weekend, it rained throughout the evening, though at least it stayed reasonably warm. However, it didn't stop 35 interprid runners making their way to Cutteslowe Park for the first Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team race of the season.
Congratulations to Nick Wilshire of Reading who won in a time of 16.07. First women was Chloe Ridewood (Abingdon AC) 22.17. There was a good turn out from Headington, Abingdon and Oxford. Also good to welcome a few new runners to the series.
- Please send any corrections (Name, Club, times) to tejvan(at)cyclinginfo.co.uk. The rain did make some things a little hard to read.
- We found a bike lock left under the tree. If it was yours, contact Tejvan and I'll try to return it.
- Apologies for running behind schedule with registration, but I think a few runners were in the same boat. Heavy traffic, due to road works, at the Wolvercote Roundabout is likely to last all season.
- The next race is in two weeks on May 23rd. (2 miles)
