Report

Today's handicap was under threat of being re-routed due to an avian statue erection process over-running, however in the nick of time RP horticulturalists occupying the far side path completed their shrubbing and laid the way clear for the September handicap. To counterbalance this luck, a large section of the near side path was closed and boarded up. Fortunately we were able to run a standard-distance standardroute handicap with the help of a marshall at the duck (egging on runners), and two at the boathouse (led by our unflappable president).

So a clear course, chilly in the shadows but generally sunny and dry was the setting. 69 runners completed the race, and there were a several drama filled moments.

Lula Rosso crossed the line first with a 51s PB in her 34th handicap; according to the serpie website this, at 63%, is her lifetime best age graded performance in 71 road races since she joined in 2005. Ian Hall managed a spirited run to take the silver. It looked like Bob Davidson might take the bronze at first - but he blew-up about 5 metres from the line and had to slow to a crawl to catch his breath. Sharon Lindores had enough head on the following pack to take a comfortable bronze.

The fourth place saw the real drama: a restarted Bob made for the line hunted down by Adrian Rosoga and Manuel Moreno. Manuel looked like he was about to take 4th, but perhaps inspired by the duck (or more likely from uneven ground) he literally flew at the line. He landed tantalizing close about 1m short, and Adrian (running an 11s PB) closely followed by Bob (running his fastest time of the year) instead took 4th and 5th. Manuel managed to compose himself and scraped (literally, unfortunately) home 6th pushing Philip Black (who was charging ahead with a 30s+ PB) and Graham Carson (with a 6s PB) into 7th and 8th places. Mr Davidson lay exhausted on the floor after the line, and needed to be helped away by four young ladies, which we are relieved to say led him to recover to his normal self very soon.

Further down the field, Robert Crangle (13th), Gemma Greenwood (14th), Andrew "Turner" Taylor (21st), Victoria O'Sullivan (23rd), Alexander Percival (32nd), Jol Attwooll (33rd), David Gill (41st), Alex Darbyshire (43rd) and scratch runners Fiona Strouts and Nyla Hussain scored Personal Bests too - congratulations all.

In the Tom Hogshead trophy race, Simon Coles' nearest competitor David Hinds was injured and helped to marshal on his crutches. Simon managed to score a respectable 16pts today (15th=6pts, plus 10pt bonus for coming under 30s from his target PB). Needless to say, Simon now holds a commanding lead at 194pts against David's 148pts and Roger Coyle's 138 pts. Steve Edwards is close behind on 137pts. Simon however now has run 8 races, so can only improve his score incrementally by bettering and discarding earlier results in his next 3 races; by comparison David Hinds has only run 7 races, and Roger Coyle and Steve Edwards (neither of whom ran today) have only run 6 races. Jennifer Bradley, the highest placed lady in the Hogshead in 5th extended her score to 133pts by an 11th place (10+10pts) and along with John Hudspith are the runners who have run all handicaps in 2009. The Hogshead trophy is traditionally awarded at the Serpie Xmas Party to the runner scoring the most points in their 8 best handicaps.

There were lots of helpers today - we needed them. Many I managed to remember at the medal giving, some I omitted - so, our fully appreciation goes to... James Adams, Kathleen Brady, Kiera Davidson, James Edgar, Gemma Greenwood, David Hinds, Poppy Lenton, Paula Lueshing, Raoul Mansukhani, Nicole Sanderson, Stephane Schneider, John d'Souza, Anthony Stranger Jones, Bev Thomas and Hilary Walker.

The next race will be on Saturday 3rd October.
