A hugely competitive field at the biggest race of the season didn't stop WADAC winning seven age-category prizes.

The warm morning on Sunday 17th June made it quite difficult to imagine the snowy conditions that had resulted in the race being postponed from March. An incredible WADAC turnout of 33 gents and 21 ladies made for an impressive and fun gathering of black and gold vests at the start.

Kate Towerton made a very welcome appearance for us and raced home to finish as the second lady in the F35 group in a super impressive 37m28s. Kathy Bailey was next to finish in first place in the F50 category and Susy Perry completed our A-team with a well-earned PB and collected the award for third in the F40 vets category.
Sarah Gurney headed up our ladies' B-team and was first in the F45 category. She was joined by Sarah Shedden and Sam Parkinson with Sam being awarded third place in that same vets band. All three of these ladies picked up PBs.
Our C-team consisted of Sally McGrandle, Caroline Carr (PB) and Penny Freeman.

George King stormed in as the fourth finisher overall in a cool 32m26s. Simon Stevens was second in the M45 category and was closely followed by James Moore. Peter Sansome completed our A-team with a significant PB.
Richard Bidgood, Guy Brayn, Lloyd Dickson (PB) and Marius Kwint made up our B-team and things were completed by our gents' C-team of Andrew McGhee (PB), George Belfield (PB), Andrew Parkinson (PB) and Miguel Flores. Jonathan Kane also won the award for the second M75.

In terms of the league our ladies A-team came second and look set to finish the season in the runner-up position. Due to our very strong turnout our B-team came first out of the teams in their division (so remain unbeatable at the top of that table) and our C-team finished just behind them in second place out of the teams in that same division. This has resulted in our ladies' C-team moving up from fifth to third in that table and it would be great if we could hold on to that with just one more race to go.
Our gents' A-team impressively finished second in their division and remain comfortably third overall in that table. Stealing the runner up slot in that division in the last race is not out of the question so fingers crossed for our chaps. Our B-team and C-team came a very respectable second and fifth respectively out of the teams in the B-Division and therefore currently reside in second place and ninth place overall respectively.

Many thanks to everybody than ran and particularly well done as always to all the prize winners and those that ran PBs.

So with just the Lordshill 10k to go we are looking forward to a very buoyant end to the season with the possibility of five of our six teams finishing in the top three in their divisions.
