A fairly quite weekend with the weather changing, it was down to Nina Wagstaff to represent CRR’s in the first event, Heading off to the Avon Valley Runners Wiltshire Half Marathon based out of Edington Nr Trowbridge. Nina having been suffering with a virus took the gamble to run this popular event, heading out from the start Nina took a more cautious approach and finding her pace over the first few miles, with the hills claiming some of the early sprinters Nina was starting to feel her racing pace returning and took to push hard and move up the field with confidence, with the miles passing Nina had made up some good places and heading into the finish Nina crossed the line in 1h 31m 50s 53/336 and 2nd in Category.

The Bicton Blister 10 mile off road race was the second event for CRR’s, heading off to Bicton Gardens, East Budleigh was Wayne Loveridge, This race starts in the ground of the gardens and then heads out for a short road section, Wayne was off hard from the start, with the road section cleared Wayne then took to the trails and tracks around Woodbury Common, with the gradient changes the going was definitely started to takes its toll but Wayne was in his element and was chasing down the very competitive field of front runners to move into the top 5, with the route peaking at 8 miles the smoother and more predictable paths back down towards the finish line allowed Waynes smooth running style to come to the fore with a final sprint over the last road section to the finish line Wayne crossed in 1h 03m 26s and 3rd/439
