Croups success at British Masters 10km Championships

The following news could possibly have appeared in a number of locations, but I'm posting it on Latest News because I may be the only one of the Editors who knows about it. Yesterday was the latest in this years Club Long Course Road Championships, the Magor Marsh 10 km. It's not a course that many of us done before, but this year it received British Masters 10 Km Championship status - and not too many championships come to Wales.

It was a very blustery morning, with very heavy rain at times. Croups were very well represented.
Team Championships were decided on a 3 to run, cumulative time basis, and were based on 10 year age brackets. Croups took TWO team golds.

We won the Ladies 55-64 with Gillian Murphy, Annie Conroy and Mal Rowson. We won the Mens 50-59 with Mick McGeoch, Rob Jones and Mick Tabor - defeating Oxford City by just THREE SECONDS, and Bridgend by just TWENTY-EIGHT SECONDS. Derek Williams was Race Referee and is finalising the results, and Mel James is Secretary of British Masters.

The 3 amigos: Mick Tabor, Rob Jones, Mick McGeoch. Gold medalists at Magor.

Alan Bladen has somehow sneaked into this photo, even though regular readers will know that he's a tad old for this age group.
And what a fine looking bunch they are!
