The second race in the Short Stuff specialist championship was the Cleeve Cuckoo race. A new race to this years championship, it was a challenging off-road race with some brutal hills! 3 men and 13 ladies took on the challenge.
First Man home was Dave Witnall picking up the 10, followed by Mark Manley for 9 points, then Gareth Roberts picking up the 8 points.
Overall after 2 races, the mens results are interesting. Only 2 races have been run, and both had a completely different field so the top 3 is a bit tricky!
- Dave Witnall and Tom Cooper both on 10 points
- Mark Garrett and Mark Manley both on 9 points
- Ben Chapman and Gareth Roberts both on 8 points
A bigger field in the ladies, first in for 10 points was Sharon Smith. Nadine Brown was second lady in, but has requested not to receive points, so the 9 points goes to Ellie Taylor, with Kirsty Pitts taking the 8 points.
The overall results are more straightforward in the ladies competition.
- Sharon Smith 19 points
- Amanda Tyler 13 points
- Rosie Oates 10 points
Well done all runners. It’s still early days with more races to go. The next race in the championship is the Cirencester Summer Sizzler 10km.
