Round 1 Borders League
Christleton, 18/10/2009

 

On Sunday twelve men and four ladies were part of a field of 320 runners in the first round of the Borders League, including two members making their League debuts. Mike Carrighan, running for the club for the first time, was a very commendable sixth Harrier home in a wonderful 42mins 35secs for 197th position overall, while Sian Hall also ran superbly finishing in 46mins 50secs for 264th position. Leading the team home, as usual, was club Captain Darren Blazier, who finished fifth overall, one position and 21 seconds better than twelve months ago, while Matthew Ashton proved he is still a force to be reckoned with, with an excellent 66th position in 36mins 44secs. Geran Hughes, despite recent injury, still turned out for the club, leading a trio home in a time of 41mins 3secs (161st), just ahead of Grahame Shone in 41mins 15secs (165th) and Ed Reid in 41mins 25secs (169th). Andy Goodson continued to improve with an excellent performance, finishing in 43mins 25secs for 214th position, while Mark Mayers and Peter Hardy also performed superbly finishing in 45mins 36secs (247th) and 46mins 4secs (255th) respectively. Alan Lucas was as reliable as ever finishing in 49mins 27secs for 289th, while Borders League ever-present John Essary was hot on his heels in 49mins 43secs for 292nd. The menís team was completed by Jonathan Perry just behind in 49mins 54secs for 294th. Carol Willgoose lead the ladies home in a very impressive 42mins 56secs for 205th position, once again pushed hard by Jenni Richards finishing in 43mins 21secs for 212th,while Angie Hughes, continuing her recovery from injury, finished in a tremendous 44mins 37secs for 230th.
