After a busy summer, we’re long overdue (sorry!) a DRC Grand Prix series update. In this update are points from Wotton parkrun in June, 10k races at Thornbury and Westonbirt House, plus the Woodchester Park race earler this month.
Congratulations to Alice Lewis who has successfully defended her title with another maximum points total! Alice is followed by Annette Heylings who is the 2nd of the ladies to complete all the required races this year and looks a sure bet for 2nd place. Eileen Hieron and Julie Froggatt look like they will be contesting the 3rd place on the podium.
Tony Woolridge is getting ever closer to defending his title but still needs one more race result to ensure top spot. Andrew Probert is lurking in a solid 2nd place if Tony slips up. Matt Read and Pete Chaffer have only 1 point separating 3rd and 4th place, but with Matt only needing one more result to qualify and Pete needing 3, Matt is in the driving seat to secure some silverware.
There are just 2 more qualifying races left in this series, both Half Marathons at Bristol (Road) and the Forest of Dean (Trail) later this month. As this year series approaches the final straight, a couple of reminders…
Marathon results must be submitted using this form for this years series. You have until the end of September to fill in a result for it to count towards the series.
Due to the inclusion of the Forest of Dean Autumn Half when the Spring Half was rearranged, the awards for this year will not be presented at the AGM, instead they will be presented at a Tuesday social night, or the Christmas Party. More details to follow…
As always, please feel free to get in touch with Mike Crompton or Tony Freer if you have any questions on the Grand Prix, either individually or using the email address email@example.com
Finally, look out for an announcement on here soon regarding the race list for the 2019 series.
