Report

Today's handicap was the second to be held this month due to the Royal Parks having other events on in Hyde Park next week. Despite this, the Red Bull event at the far end of the Serpentine nearly caused the race to be scrubbed. In the end, after a short delay to the start, the race took place and 66 runners completed the trial.

The race was won decisively by Charles Doxat with a new V65 record of 29:04 (an average pace of 6:42). After the race Charles said that he'd "only been waiting 20 years to win the handicap" - proving that the gold medal can be won by anyone with a little patience.

Charles had a comfortable lead over second place Lula Rosso, who was comfortably ahead of third place Keith Evans. The term "comfortable" is used to refer to the time margin - the weather was quite unpleasant by the end of the race, illustrated by the fact that the only PBs were for Roger Coyle (just out of the medals in 4th and matching his time from April), Kathleen Brady and Keira Davidson. In fact Kathleen and Keira were both in their 3rd handicaps and so it was not unusual that they scored PBs at this stage. So hats off to Roger for improvement of the day!

Speaking of hats, many runners were trying the new club £8 lightweight hats to keep the sun off them and boost performance. (Richard Jones might not thank me for drawing your attention to that on a day lacking in best times...)

Other highlights of today's race included James Stratford completing his 150th handicap (and taking 6th place) just ahead of Eamonn's expected 200th handicap next month.

Other good performances just short of PBs were Lula (in 2nd), Brian Pickles (5th), Peter Bowles and (significantly) Graham Carson (8th). Adding all of the point-for-positions plus bonuses-for-performance onto the running total of the Tom Hogshead scores results in Graham Carson now taking the lead (116pts) from Jane Harris (112pts). Last month Jeannette Mueller and Tom Donovan shared 4th place, but now Jeannette (100pts) has claimed 3rd with Tom still in 4th (98pts). Marielle Vestlund (who didn't run) and Kathleen Broekhof (returning from an FLM injury) take the next two places.

Thanks to all those who made the race possible today (especially as Mark was away running in Stockholm/being poisoned by the Swedes): Jaran Finn, Ron Hagell, Phil Kelvin, Jon Knox, Sarah Knox, James Stewart, Bev Thomas, Tomas Valasek, Beate Vogt, John Walker and Ros Young.

Contrary to earlier assertions about this being John Walker's last handicap meeting, I am assured that he will be in good voice for a couple more including the next one which will take place on Saturday 5th July.
