KFL Rough Common – 8th February 2015

Sunday 8th Feburary saw the last race of this seasons KFL at Rough Common Canterbury. (there are to be no end of season relays this year) Doesn’t time fly when you are having fun.

PWAC had 20 athletes and 1 junior (Evan Wild) competing in the race’s  around a chilly Blean Woods.

Once again the ladies outnumbered the men, guys where were you. (are you all going soft)

Colin Tricker had another excellent run, entering  the woods in 4th place and coming back and finishing in exactly the same position. Well done Colin you appear to be flying at the moment.

Pete Buckingham, Alan Newman, Rob Rowland, Mark Wild, Richard Bidois and John Tilson made up the rest of men’s scoring team.

Claire Day had another good day at the office winning the women’s race, closely followed by the ever improving Sarah Shepherd who finished 3rd.  Emma Holland had another good run finishing  10th  lady.(marathon training definitely paying off for these 3) and these ladies today won the days (ladies) team event.

Thank you to all the other runners who took time to  turn out for PWAC.

Alan Newman along with Lori Tricker both gave blood for the clubs cause, nothing  too serious I can report although I did not help Lori’s bruised shoulder by giving it  a well-meaning pat.  I must say I didn’t like the way she looked at the starters pistol sitting beside her as she was being looked after by St Johns first aid.

We have had  44  different runners out this season with  only 4 runners competing all  7 races (Sue Chivers, Lori Tricker, Richard Bidois and Colin Tricker ) true dedication to the cause, along with 10 other runners competing in 5 or more races. Well done one and all.

Final individual results; Colin (3rd man)  Claire (Ladies Runner Up) and  Sue James (F60 winner)  will  all now receive individual end of season trophies along with our ladies team.  See full list of champions at  http://kfl.canterburyharriers.org/champions.php?yr=2014

The end of season awards will be presented on the 15th March after the Dartford Half Marathon at the Fox & Hounds PH close to the finish of the half marathon – any further details to follow.

The full results from today and for the rest of the season can now be seen on the KFL web sitehttp://kfl.canterburyharriers.org/xc_result.php?id=5865  . Any amendments if any will be e-mailed out in due course.

A big THANK YOU goes to everybody who has run in this season’s KFL, along with all the supporters. (who came along or just replied to my emails)  Without you all Jeanette and I would be very lonely.

Hopefully next season we might see a few more men running and  then the  club competing at the top end of the league once more.
