Report

Three features made the August 2011 Handicap unique and possibly even worthy of historic mention. First, it was held in July rather than August (having to give way to an Olympic trial event scheduled for 6th August); second, it was run over a new route (created to avoid the increasing risks of running straight through the Lido Cafe forecourt); and thirdly, it coincided with Bob Davidson's 80th birthday. Bob ran through the finish line to the roar of his fellow Serpies singing "Happy Birthday Dear Bob, Happy Birthday to You!" What an achievement, many congratulations, Bob, you have done us proud!

Our grateful thanks go to Malcolm French, Amy Cope and Ros Young together with their team of marshalls. It was their sheer determination that this race should go ahead that enabled a full risk assessment to be completed, a new route to be arranged, measured, licensed and then marshalled all within a matter of days.

So how was the new route? It was noticeable that some members were convinced that the new route is more challenging since it now contains "a hill" (As someone who now lives in Cornwall, I find it interesting to think that Hyde Park/Kensington Gardens might contain a hill, however ....)

Inspite of the alleged hill, the 78 runners recorded a good number of PB's. Congratulations to Andrew Williams, first; to Stephanie Vaatz, second with a PB, and to Alan Hall, third.

The Tom Hogshead is looking extremely competitive at the top, which should make for an interesting final four months. In first place we have Stephanie Wyman with 151 points (7 races); second now Rob Crangle with 150 points (six races); and Neil Bradshaw with 141 points (seven races). Congratulations to Nick Fairclough, currently fourth on 139 points.
