Rose Inn #4, 14th August 2018

(thanks to Mick for this - cut and pasted from the forum)

It was another sticky evening last night in what has been a long sticky summer.
Not that I'm complaining, because every time I went to Rose Inn in 2017 I'd have to take my car through the car wash the next day, but not this year!
There were some very impressive performances at the sharp end. Matt Clowes led from gun to tape to record 19:05, thereby breaking the 7 year old course record of his great friend and training partner, Carwyn Jones. Not to be outdone, Jenny Nesbitt of Worcester finished 8th overall in 21:26, a time only bettered last year by Charlotte Arter.
Croups had 29 runners out of the 210 finishers, another great showing.
On the night, Croups runners making the top three in their age groups were:

F35 3 Jenny MartinCopyright Paul Stillman
F40 1 Angela Champion; 2 Susan Bowes
F50 3 Eve Gallop-Evans
F60 2 Gill Murphy
F70 1 Clare Johnson
M35 2 Doug Nicholls
M40 3 Stuart Crees
M60 2 Mike Murphy
M65 2 Rob Evans
We also provided 5 age group series winners (3 out of 4 races to qualify):
M45 Rick Baker
F40 Claire Jacobs
F45 Lolly Evans
F55 Julie Scholey
F60 Gill Murphy
Well done everyone, and thanks to Chepstow Harriers for another cracking series.
