DRC Grand Prix 2018 Update – Chipping Sodbury parkrun

Chipping Sodbury parkrun was the focus of the Grand Prix series this February with many DRC runners making the effort to go a bit further from home to record a qualifying time on a Saturday morning whilst also having a go at Neil’s February challenge!

Pete Chaffer still holds the lead in the men’s league, but he now has the familiar face of Tony Wooldridge lurking just behind in 2nd place following an impressive 81.86% age grading.  Mike Crompton now sits in 3rd after recording a 17:35 5km PB for a 74.6% age grading.  It remains very tight at the top with Andy Probert is just 1 point behind Mike, and Matt Read and Dave Durden both a further 2 points behind.

In the women’s league the top 3 remains unchanged after Alice Lewis recorded an excellent 83.17% age grading, however Annette Heylings has now closed to within 2 points of Eileen Hieron. Shona Darley and Margaret Johnson lead the chasing pack.
