Round 5 – Stockwood Park, Luton

Round 5 – Stockwood Park, Luton



February 14th 2009 – Stockwood Park, Luton

The final race of the season at Luton offered runners a flattish parkland course in fairly good conditions despite snow underfoot on the low lying section furthest away from the start/finish line.  Although the mens turnout was a little depleted from earlier outings the ladies fielded a full team for the second time in the season. 

The race order was reversed to give organisers time to get the results completed for a prize giving later on in the afternoon.  With the men going out first, all were home to welcome the ladies back with shouts (and screams) of encouragement.  Barbara led home with Hayley, Pippa and Jo close behind.

With the ladies present, it was the post race drinks at the Birds Nest which were the most enjoyable part of the day, where the entire Thame team turned up to recount their stories of the season (although Rod subbed for Richard).  A real feeling of camaraderie exuded – or was it just the beer making me think that.. 

Well done all.  – Lord B.
