Sunday 20th May 2018. Six age category prizes and wins for our ladies A and B teams.

A bright morning greeted a WADAC contingent of 12 gents and 9 ladies (meaning that we had full A, B and C teams - but only just). The clouds soon cleared, allowing a sunny race of three loops in and out of the tree-cover in the country park.

Susy Perry was our first lady to finish in an excellent sub-40min time, earning the first prize in the F40 category. Sarah Gurney was next and won the top prize in the F45 vets group and our A-team was completed by Natalie Cain.
Sarah Shedden collected the runner-up prize in the F40 category and made up our B-team with Emma Carter and Joy Radford. Joy also won the F65 vets category.
The ladies' C-team was comprised of Melissa Callister, Gill Goodwin and Sarah Aldridge.

Richard Bidgood headed up our gents teams, finishing twelfth overall and coming second in the M40 category. The rest of our A-team was made up of Lloyd Dickson (just two seconds ahead of) George Belfield and then Bruce Ayling.
The B-team featured Simon Gillett, Stephen Lowy, Saul Duck and Steve Cluett and our gents C-team was Steve Goodwin, Richard Munro, David Walker and Jonathan Kane who won first prize in the M75 vets category.

In terms of the league our ladies' A-team came first, however due to successes earlier in the season the Southampton AC team have pushed us into second place overall in the table. Our B-team also came first out of the teams in their division and are now unbeatable at the top of that table. The ladies' C-team finished eleventh out of the teams in that same division and are currently fifth overall.
Our gents' A-team finished fourth in their division and remain comfortably third overall in that table. Our B-team and C-teams came sixth and twelfth respectively out of the teams in the B-Division and therefore currently reside in second place (just) and tenth place overall respectively.

So with just two races to go this season some of the final league results are going to be too close to call. Our ladies' A-team could still win but they've got quite a task ahead, requiring some great performances at the Eastleigh and Lordshill 10ks.
