Noel Morris Memorial Handicap – April Results

Slotting in neatly between the hailstorms – brilliantly organised by Rob P and Kate – this was a much more exciting race than in March, mainly because there were more people (27) with tighter handicapping. It was cold (7C), and wet underfoot, with the long grass making it particularly energy-sapping. Despite the fact that most had run hard races at the weekend there were some remarkable times, especially in the tough conditions. Katy equalled her previous best from 2 years ago and Elen continued her series of strong performances (2 minutes quicker than last year!). Very good (sort of) to see Victoria hurtle past me, after her months of adversity. Top performance by Jon W – another PB, I think – made possible by his strength on the big hill, where once upon a time he used to crumble. Welcome to Lizzy, Luke, Peter L, and John G, who all impressed. Interesting that only Shaun got under 20 minutes (though Glen was close) which confirms that it was heavy going out there.
